    Well, I just have to say that I just got my hands on this Cameo everyone has been raving about and I’m very pleased. The text block is amazingly clear and legible given it’s font size. And the brown vachetta calfskin is very soft and flexible. I can only imagine what the goatskin it like. I’m very happy with this purchase.

    I\’ve had this bible for awhile now and can honestly say it has become one of my favorites. The leather is soft to the touch and thick, the whole bible has a nice \”structured\” feel to it. The pages are not cluttered and the print is very clear and easy on the eyes. Taken as a whole you\’ll find that the cameo is a perfect companion bible for Church, work, travel, or just reading on the couch. It fits nicely in your hands, and feels great. A+

    I have the goatskin edition in addition to this. Please understand that the goatskin is an absolute top of the line Bible that I have no compunction in lauding. Indeed, I adore Cambridge Goatskin Bibles. But with that being said, I find this Bible to be superior to the goat…any goat. It is the softest cover I\’ve ever felt. It\’s highly flexible. Also it\’s a rather thick leather cover. As delicate as it feels it would take a lot to make it wear even a bit. I imagine this Bible ages well and would look more handsom with continued use. The hubs are well defined (rare these days). If it was leather lined like the goat I don\’t know if you could even keep it in your hands in would be so fluid.

    Another thing that is very difficult to tell from the pictures is that there is a subtle marbling effect here. So many search ebay for those old gold boxed cameos with the marbled colors. Well there is an element of that here but on a superior binding.

    The text itself is clearer and more precise than in past cameo editions. The words in red are darker making them easier to read and more dignified.

    Don\’t think about it, buy it.

    This is my 1st Cambridge Bible. I give this a five star for everything.
    Even though the small size it reads just like a large print primarilly because of the sharp
    print. This is the perfect size for carrying to Church or were ever you carry your bible.
    The cover is as soft as butter. I know this Bible will last a lifetime. Also great service from Evangelical Bible!!!

    Probably as close to a perfect Bible overall that you could possibly want. Superb binding and wonderful soft calfskin. The print is nice and bold and very readable for this size font. This would rank as one of Cambridge’s better productions. This is a “go everywhere” Bible, and the KJV is still the best language and translation of them all. Buy it now, it will last forever.

    I received this Bible from Cambridge gratis for review purposes. It arrived sufficiently packaged in a cardboard box with one other Bible. They did not deform or break through their packaging and the Bibles were in perfect shape when they were delivered.
    Upon opening the box I was presented with the clamshell retail box, which should be retained for storage purposes. The Bible inside the box was instantly striking in appearance. I am accustomed to many different qualities of cover material. When I picked the Cameo up out of the box I was struck by the soft texture of this type of calfskin leather. The grain was smoother with smaller pebbling compared to goatskin leather. I was expecting a darker brown with a texture like other top grain cowhide Bibles. I was pleasantly surprised. This calfskin was smoother and soft. The front of the Cameo is hot stamped with, “Holy Bible” in gold. There is a channel pressed into the leather around the perimeter of the cover. On the spine of the Cameo is, “Holy Bible” at the top, “King James Version” in the middle, and the Cambridge Logo at the bottom. They are all hot stamped in gold. The page edges are beautifully art gilded with red under gold. In the front of the Cameo you have publication information page followed by a nice presentation page. After that is the text of the KJV. Lastly, there is a very useful concordance in the back along with 15 color maps that are indexed.
    The construction of the Cameo is top-notch. In addition to having a wonderful cover that will last a lifetime, it has a sewn binding that will last as long as the cover. Because of these two fine qualities the Cameo is a pleasure to hold and read. The Bible opens well and lays flat easily without being overly flexible. This edition does everything right. The only way this could be any better is if it were in NASB.
    The inside cover is lined with vinyl that is color matched and glued down. The corners are finished nicely. There are two ribbon markers that match the color of the cover as well. Some less expensive Chinese or Korean Bibles try to entice you with a very supple calfskin cover lined with calfskin or another very flexible material. Then, they drop the ball with either the paper or the fit and finish. That is not so with the Cameo from Cambridge. The paper is nice and opaque. The font is a cleaned up 8 point, Petit Medieval Clarendon type. It is bold and easy to read. The text is arranged in a double column verse format with center column references.
    I know there is a big trend now for the single column paragraph formats. Personally, I find it more difficult to focus on during reading in my home. I have a busy house and am always getting interrupted. As a consequence I routinely lose my place and have to look for where I left off so that I can resume reading. The paragraph format has all of the tiny verse numbers dispersed through the text and finding them or remembering where you left off can be a bit more tedious. I find it easier to pick up where I left off if I can find the verse quickly. This is my personal preference.
    The Cameo is a delightful size Bible to hold and read anywhere. I can sit in my recliner and read it, I can read it in bed, I can read it on my work break, and I can read it while I drive… I was just checking to see if you were still awake. Never read and drive! Seriously, seldom will you find a combination of form and function like the Cameo.

    I made an error on my review. The liner is black and not the same color as the exterior cover.

    The best hand size Authorized (King James) Version Bible in print.

    First of all, the text is bold and sharp. In addition, with the easy to read font style, it all adds up to being easy on the eyes, thereby making the study of God’s divinely preserved Word more engaging. Cambridge has definitely improved the sharpness and boldness of this text over their previous Cameo editions of the not so distant past.

    The brown calfskin cover is beautiful and very soft. This Cameo Bible opens up flat right out of the box, which makes for easier readability. All of the colors used in this edition complement each other. It has a very rich appearance to it that befits the grandeur and majesty of the Word of God.

    The KJV text, font, Bible size and high quality calfskin leather makes this Bible the perfect Bible to use for study, Church and for evangelizing. On a side note, it also comes in a nice protective clam-shell box to keep it protected against any possible damage that could otherwise occur to it.

    “For the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any twoedged sword…Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him…The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

    The Authorized (King James) Version is the divinely preserved Word of God in the English language, that the man of God may be perfect/complete, throughly furnished unto all good works. There are no missing words, verses or doctrines.

    As a Bible believing Christian, I highly recommend this Cambridge KJV Cameo Ref. Edition Brown Vachetta Calfskin Leather Bible.

    Yeah. I have one of the first printings of this version. The text block is from the 1920 Cameo 16mo. refs; the original version was offset printed; this new Cameo is a hi-res scanned image to plate edition. I have the original leather bound Cambridge Wide Margin using this text block (offset printing) — 4 decades young and still functioning brilliantly.
    This handy sized version — Cameo is outstanding on all counts. Get one, it is the finest KJV of its kind on the market today. Highly recommended.
