I am always delighted to share with you pictures and stories of people who have had their Bibles rebound. Today, I am happy to introduce you to Tom, who had a vintage 1950's Knox Bible rebound by Leonard's. Enjoy!
I've long wanted to do a Leonard's rebind since seeing one via Tim's blog. I narrowed the choice of translation down to the Knox due to the clarity and freshness of the language, and briefly considered the Baronius Press edition but don't like the page layout. Instead, I settled on an 1950s Knox hardback from Sheed and Ward found on eBay. Leonard's did a great job smoothing and repairing a few flawed pages in Jeremiah. I chose the pebble grain cowhide, a semi-glossy black - love the traditional look and the raised edges along the spine. Great feel as well, and I think of how this creature of God's (cow) gives praise to Him by covering the Holy Word.
