Cambridge Bibles NKJV Clarion Reference Bible--calf split leather, black

Cambridge Clarion Bibles bring together several attractive design features—readable print, single-column layout, and paragraph format—in a personal size Bible. The text runs right across the page, with the cross-references moved to the outer margin, to give the page a very well-laid-out appearance. The type size is just under 9 point with generous line spacing, making the Bible text extremely clear and readable. The Bible has 15 new color maps and a concordance. There are two ribbons to keep the place in different parts of the Bible. These Bibles are of the highest quality, printed on India paper, with black letter text, and Smyth-sewn for flexibility and endurance.

Nicely constructed Bible, but one shortcoming

The previous reviewer is 100% correct about page curling. This makes it a little difficult to use. I understand that the other editions of this Bible have different gilding on the page edges which may help, but I do not know so by personal experience.
This is a very handy size Bible and excellent quality other than that hang-up.

Finally, the NKJV gets the Cambridge Clarion! I just received mine yesterday, and it is beautiful. I have the split calf. It is a little stiff out of the box, but will still lay flat when you turn to Genesis 1:1.
For such a small Bible, it is so easy to read!
Here, in my opinion, is the Bible's only shortcoming, which is why I give it 4 stars, instead of 5: The paper curls.
It is so thin, that the page corners curl up. Not a deal breaker, but just to let you know. Other that, I highly recommend the Cambridge Clarion New King James Version.
