My Mom was a student of the Word of God throughout her life. She took notes, underlined things, looked up words, and prayed over the text. One Bible she had was a beat up King James version that she got in 1967 from my Dad. It is red, and I remember her reading it during prayer in the morning. I just sent it off to be rebound, and I’m excited to see what it will look like. I should have taken before pictures, but I’ve had a lot going on so I didn’t. I sent it to this place: Mechling Bookbindery. You can watch a short video about them at this link.
I ordered red goatskin, with a red and a gold ribbon. I expect it to look great and to last for years to come. It’s a Cambridge Bible, so it should be a real treasure. I’ll put pictures up when the work is finished.
