As we have said before, the premium Bible market is dominated by several players: Schuyler, Cambridge and Allan. These 3 publishers are focused exclusively on the premium market. As you will see below, Zondervan and Nelson have also put their feet in this market with publishing taking place in China.
Schuyler’s most popular format is its flagship Quentel® Series. It is consistently a best seller at evangelicalbible.com. Published in the ESV, NASB, NKJV, & NIV, the Quentel® is available in regular and Personal Size editions The KJV edition is called the Canterbury and is also available in a Personal Size edition. Here is a chart of all Schuyler Bibles.
Cambridge recently republished their popular Turquoise (not to be confused with a color) KJV Bible which has received excellent reviews. The Blue Turquoise is back in stock. It stands in the same class as the Allan Longprimer and Schuyler Canterbury. Cambridge’s Concord Reference KJV is a firm favorite along with their Clarion Series – available in the ESV, NASB, KJV, NKJV, & NIV.
The British company, R.L. Allan, continues to publish its distinctive “Highland Goatskin” Bibles from relatively small binderies in the UK. Unfortunately, production supply has not kept up with demand, and therefore many Allan Bibles are out of stock before they reach the shores of the New World. We recommend you don’t wait to purchase when you see that special Bible in stock in our store!
Most books today are the result of an extremely mechanized process of a thousand moving parts. A monument to mechanical engineering. These well oiled engines produce hundreds of thousands books per day. Using economies of scale and complete robotic automation books can end up on a pallet without a fingerprint and for less than a single shot latte.Premium Bibles (Schuyler, Cambridge, Allan) are alien to the world of automation and to most publishers because they require trained artisans who have book binding skill. One expert has estimated that at least 30 hands have been involved in one Premium Bible. Stitching, pleating, rounding, embossing, spraying are a few skills that only a handful of craftsmen and women are able to perform today. We will write more about the details of this process at a later time, but suffice it to say – Premium hand made Bibles are an altogether different product than their distant cousins that were birthed through the coordination of hundreds of gears and pistons.
