Such quality in a slimline Bible I've not seen since the olden days when Nelson Signature Series calfskin leather cover Bibles were available.
Paper quality is excellent in this ESV. Binding is strong. Cover is subtle calf skin. Smythe sewn. Gold-leaf page edging.
Not a fan of presentation pages but this volume is so appealing, I don't mind them.
Color maps. Concordance. Textual notes at base of page.
The text is the ESV 2011 edition.
If I recommended this book with more glowing references, you'd think I was biased ;)
For similar quality in an English or Dutch printed edition of the ESV, you'd pay two-to-three times this price!

I normally try to keep my opinions to myself but given the opportunity to review this I had to share. This Bible is by far the highest quality I have ever owned. The leather used on the cover is exactly that Leather. Being calfskin it is very soft and supple and being leather it also has it's own unique pattern. As far as the ESV I am familiar and very comfortable with the translation, as it is my preferred. I have not really used the bible helps (concordance etc.) as of yet. Great value for the money.

Just the right size to carry around. Font is big enough to be readable
