Schuyler has chosen a new design to complement its flagship Quentel reference series. The new design comes as Schuyler Bible Publishers continues to expand its influence in the premium Bible world. Here is a PDF sampler of the layout.
Schuyler’s new design is unique, attractive and practical. It has been named the Treveris series after the distinguished British printer Peter Treveris (~1520).
The Treveris setting is a single column paragraph Bible, which will begin with the King James Version, but will potentially extend to the NKJV, ESV, NASB and perhaps the NIV and NLT.
The Treveris is unique in that it seeks to give the Bible reader a format that is free of human commentary, i.e. without subheadings, references, etc., but at the same time remains practical for Bible study. To that end we have designed a format where the text itself is free from callers, subheadings, and numbers, but verse and chapter designations are available in the margins, with subheadings in the header. The Treveris is a hybrid of sorts: it has clear, uncluttered text, while the practical tools for navigation are offered without being intermingled and distracting. (It is extremely easy to find where a verse begins in this setting) It also comes in a highly readable sleek design – 5.5″ x 8.5″ x ~1.1″
Poetic sections and quotations have been ‘set off’ in a block verse- by-verse format (see below). The generous 10 point vintage semi-bold font with adequate spacing between letters, words and lines, has created a format that makes reading exciting! The ornamental drop caps produce an artful, attractive vintage style that appeals to many Bible readers. We hope to have our first copies in stock by early 2020.

Below are a few rough draft samples which may be slightly altered before publication – these are here to represent the basic form of this series. Here are some first impressions of this typesetting by Randy Brown.

Poetry and quotations are block indented and versified as below. Psalms (above) is versified but not indented since the entire book is poetry.
A unique aspect of the Treveris is that it sets off poetry. That is not common in the King James Version, in large measure due to the fact that most KJV Bibles are double column and versified.
A portion of Ephesians below. Chapter numbers are clear and bold. Verse numbers in the margin.
Poetry block indented. Inserted words in italics.
