>Arion Press is announcing a special printing of a folio Bible. Here is their ad:
In the tradition of grand printed lectern Bibles, the Arion Press Folio Bible is a monument to the scriptures, to fine typography, and to fine bookmaking.
If you treasure beautifully made books, read on to discover a unique, handcrafted edition of the Good Book.
Following in the tradition of Gutenberg and other fine printers over more than five centuries, Andrew Hoyem and his skilled artisans at Arion Press in San Francisco have created an oversize, Folio Edition of the Holy Bible using traditional letterpress techniques and the finest materials and craftsmanship.
“This Bible is unique because this place is unique. It’s one of the last shops in the world where all the work on a book is done under one roof”, notes Elizabeth Farnsworth of the PBS News Hour.
This special Bible is handbound in full leather, in linen box.
The price: a mere $8,500. Give several of these Bibles for Christmas
