What’s Coming in 2021!
For a multitude of reasons, premium Bible demand has exceeded supply in the last year or so. In the case of Schuyler, virtually every edition is being sold out at a rate that surpasses Schuyler’s ability to republish. For many books or products this is an easy fix: Simply increase supply. In the case of Schuyler (and I would include Cambridge & Allan) increasing production is complicated and certainly cannot be accomplished by a simple “flip of the switch.”
Most book production is a highly mechanized event. I have witnessed book production in some of the world’s largest factories and have marveled at the genius of thousands of moving parts, conveyor belts, folding, cutting, turning, stamping, gilding –all producing books without so much as a human finger involved in the result, save the one that touches the “start” switch. It’s truly a tribute to mechanical engineering and economies of scale.
Edge-lined binding (Schuyler, Cambridge & Allan – as well as a few others) is another process altogether. Though the form of an edge-lined Bible resembles that of its mechanized cousin – their creation is completely distinct, as are their qualities. Cambridge has estimated that approximately 30 people have laid hands on an edge-lined Bible before it reaches the owner. To give but one example (Schuyler has been posting video and pictures at times) – every Schuyler bible (when it is in book block form) is taken to a room and put in a vise (if you’re British – vice). Men and women put on masks (before COVID) and take out their spray guns attached to ink canisters and spray the edges. The pages are dried and then sprayed once again for the deep colors that we appreciate – and which cannot be replicated via android automation. We all know what happens when you put too much ink on that Bible….it bleeds!
Ok. Why am I writing about bleeding Bibles? (or hand cut edges, corners, sewing, embossing, rounding, etc.)? More craftsmen and women need to be trained to keep up with the evolution of the premium Bible market. We can’t simply order more leather and paper. (And trust me – ordering our leather and paper is another story altogether.) We must train Homo sapiens to create handmade Bibles. We intend to do our best to rise with this growing tide of high end Bible demand. We ask our Bible community to be patient when you see Bibles frequently “out of stock” or “coming soon.” We are increasing production, but we must do it with more people, not simply more ingredients and automation.
This is one of the reasons increasing production is not merely a “flip of the switch.”
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.
