This is a hand-bound edition of the Bible in the King James Version. You can find the original here. It’s a red-letter edition typeset by 2K/Denmark and printed by Thomas Nelson. In our estimation it’s one of the most beautifully printed (yet affordable) editions of the KJV. We wanted to offer a premium rebind with a better cover.

The leather for this rebind is premium veg-tanned goatskin from Siegel Leather. The cover is black and the lining is the same goatskin leather but in a mocha color. 

The perimeter lining is stitched using machine straight stitching in black thread. The yap is slightly more than a quarter inch.

The spine was reinforced with a fresh piece of bookbinding cloth and PVA glue. It has black headbands and three double satin ribbons — two rusty red and one gold.

The spine has five raised hubs and it says “Holy Bible” and "KJV" in blind stamping.

A coating of rose madder archival ink was added on top of the gold gilding that the Bible originally came with, to give the gilding a more reddish golden hue. 

That’s what we did for this rebind. Tell us what you think! We are newer at rebinding and still perfecting our craft, and this is priced accordingly. Each rebind is a unique piece of work that took many careful hours to complete. It doesn’t look like it came off a factory line. If you’re looking for a bespoke look in a premium binding that will last for many years, this is for you.
