So excited! The ESV Reader’s Bible is coming out in a Bibliotheca-like edition! As one of the top fifteen redheaded Bible typography enthusiasts in the nation (see my Bible Typography Manifesto and assorted other resources here), I can only go on record as saying, “Yes, yes, yes!” Take note, especially, of the fact that chapter numbers will not be included—those numbers were a flaw in the otherwise excellent ESV Reader’s Bible.
No word on price. The typeface, however, is Trinité, which is a creation of Bram de Does, the designer of Lexicon (which was used in the ESV Study Bible and the ESV Reader’s Bible). Super classy.
Buying a new Bible never proves to help my Bible reading for very long. But, empirically speaking, reader’s editions of Scripture have helped me get through the whole Bible better than any other kind of edition. The thick paper and attention to detail that I’m sure will be present here will be very welcome.
