ESV Study Bible in October!
This just in. The ESV Bible Blog has just announced that the ESV Study Bible website is now active. It is well organized and has all of the information you could want about the editions so check it out. It looks like it will be available after October 15, 2008. I was extremely pleased to read:
Printing and Binding Specs—All Editions
* Pages and size—Pages: 2,752; trim size: 6 ½ × 9 ¼ inches.
* Paper—Printed on high-opacity, high-quality French Bible paper from Papeteries Du Luman (PDL); this is widely considered the finest paper in the world and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), having been made from forests that are managed to preserve and sustain forestlands.
* Typesetting—Set in highly readable, 9-point, single-column type for the Bible text, and 7.25-point, double-column type for the notes.
* Printing—Full-color throughout, printed on high-speed web presses created especially for the high-quality demands of Bible printing.
* Binding—All editions are Smyth sewn, which is considered the finest Bible binding method and is designed to last a lifetime.
It sounds like they’ve been listening in to the conversations going on at Mark’s Bible Design and Binding blog and I can’t wait to pick up a copy of this bible for myself.
