This is an entirely new setting of the Bible, published to coincide
with the 400th anniversary of the King James Version but intended to
become a staple of the Cambridge list for many years to come as a new
and distinctive format, across a range of versions. This particular
edition is the first new Cambridge KJV reference Bible for over half a
century and has been carefully designed for the modern era to meet an
increasing demand for a more accessible format and comfortable reading
It is typeset in Lexicon No.1, a digital font designed for easy
reading and with many similar characteristics to traditional hot-metal
Bible typefaces, thus marrying the best of the old and the new. The
print is black-letter throughout and the text is presented in paragraph
(rather than traditional chapter and verse) style and in a single-column
format. The notes and cross-references have been relocated to the outer
margin, leaving the text relatively free and unencumbered.
These Bibles include maps and–instead of a conventional concordance
and dictionary–a Reader’s Companion which offers the key elements of
those features in one place.
