The Cambridge Family Chronicle Bible has been designed and produced as a Bible to enjoy for generations. It combines the best typographic design with the highest standards of printing and bookbinding.
The majestic text of the King James Bible is presented in a typesetting inspired by the legendary Baskerville Bible of 1763, and the words of Scripture are brought to life with over 200 engravings by 19th century illustrator Gustave Doré – painstakingly reproduced for this edition from the original printings.
Drawing on the glories of the past, but also looking to the future, this Bible incorporates a unique 14-page Family Chronicle section, allowing owners to tell their family story to future generations and record up to six generations of family history in clearly laid out sections – a traditional practice in earlier eras.
The Bible is printed on paper selected for its strength and durability, and bound in a choice of cloth and superior leathers. Each edition involves hand binding work, necessary due to its large size. This cloth Bible has a contemporary look, with dramatic metallic foil blocking.
The concept was developed, the illustrations scanned and adjusted, and the books designed and typeset by 2K/Denmark. The Cambridge Family Chronicle Bible was typeset using Baskerville 1757 Pro adapted by Lars Bergquist in 2002.
Bound in elegant and hardwearing buckram cloth, the cover features a stunning ‘fire and water’ detail from one of Doré’s woodcuts on both the front and back panels. The blue page edges complete the overall finish for a striking aesthetic and the book is supplemented with a blue ribbon to provide an easy way to find your place.
The endpapers of this edition feature enlarged versions of two of Doré’s impressive engravings, allowing the opportunity to fully appreciate the scale and detail of the works.
The volume is protected by an attractive blue and orange slipcase designed to complement the binding and includes a brochure telling the story behind this Bible and its components, as well as a user guide to assist the owner in completing the Family Chronicle.
