This listing is a beautiful Victorian era design with illuminated calligraphy and the Charles Dickens quote. We take a lot of care in adding the color embellishments by hand. We can also customize with the family name and established date on the spine. This is our traditional wedding band design, with hand tooling and scripture of your choosing. Crosses are also available as are other designs you can find in our other listings.
We customize and produce every bible when it is ordered and our specialty is working with clients to personalize it. Our hand finished leather is the perfect way to be sure this bible becomes a bible that will last for a very long time. Our leather is permanently attached or "bound", to the original text block of the bible of your choice. We keep our favorite smyth sewn bibles in stock which range in size but usually are approximately 9 inches tall and 6 inches wide with the spine from half an inch to a little over an inch for the standard size. ESV, NIV, NKJV, KJV, and Catholic are available. Our Family bibles are approximately 11 inches by 9 with spines of 1 1/2 to 2 inches. They are available in NIV, NKJV, KJV and Catholic. You can also choose the option to provide the bible of your choosing. Just select "Your Standard" or "Your Family..." When we get the order and see that you are providing the bible, we will give you an address for shipping it to. Antique brown is our standard finish. We usually put the antique ribs on the spine and Holy Bible, but we can put whatever text you like or leave the spine smooth if you prefer. Names, scripture, dates, are included. When ordering, just leave your specifications in the comments section during checkout. We will send you a proof to approve before making, so watch your messages from Etsy!
