The Cameo Edition is a classic Cambridge typesetting, originally produced in the 1920s for letterpress printing. It has been widely admired by generations of readers for its solution to the Bible designer's dilemma of readable type in a manageable size. Unavailable for a while, the Cameo Reference Edition is re-issued in response to continued consumer interest. The re-issue has offered an opportunity for the print image to be enhanced, so while the text is presented in same familiar layout and the original Petit Medieval Clarendon type, it is now sharper than in printings of recent years. This Bible comes with a concordance and 15 color maps. The text has pronunciation marks for names and the words of Christ on earth are printed in red. In this edition, the goatskin cover is edge-lined, giving the Bible superb suppleness and flexibility. It is printed on India paper with art-gilt edges and has a presentation page and three ribbon markers.
