I received my Mom’s Bible back today from Mechling Bookbindery. They did a fantastic job on it as I thought they would. The Bible is a KJV that she received on October 14th, 1976. It is a Cambridge Bible printed on India paper and measures about 4.5″ x 7″.
Here are some pictures of the final product [click to enlarge]:
The image above shows the two ribbons that I requested, gold and crimson.
This gives you some idea of how it folds open and the stiffness of the goatskin leather.
These are the new endpapers that they inserted.
This is a view of the spine.
I expect this Bible to last for the rest of my life and I will treasure it throughout. I am probably going to send another one – an RSV – and will take before and after pictures if I do.
