The Word of God – Physical Form

May 26, 2017

The Humble Lamb Bible is printed and bound in the Netherlands by Royal Jongbloed, which has produced only the best quality books since 1862. The quality of these Bibles is superb, for each Bible is individually hand-crafted to meet the highest standards. Only the best materials were used to encase the holy Word of God.

You never actually own a Humble Lamb Bible. You merely take care of it for the next generation. 

We are so confident in the quality of these heirloom Bibles that we have included an international lifetime warranty with each purchase. 

Covers

These Bibles are available in three distinct colors: Black, Blue, and Red (official color names are pending). Each containing the highest quality 8mm Berishford ribbons.

The cover material is full grain Goatskin Leather, which is favored for it’s suppleness, softness, and durability. 

 

What is Full Grain Leather? 

Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide which has ALL of the grain, therefore, FULL grain. The natural surface of full grain leather becomes more burnished and beautified with continued use. It is the best leather money can buy and the only leather good enough for the Humble Lamb Bibles. 

Book Spine

A few centuries ago, books were only for the aristocrats, and every good-crafted book had Raised Hubs or “Ribs”. The raised hubs in our Bibles will not only feel great in the hand, but will also give your Bible a classy, clean look.

Art-Gild

A red or blue decorative finish was added to the page edges, where dye and gilt foil combine to add richness and luster to the finished Bible.

Edge-line Bound

A rare but highly durable method of binding is used in the Humble Lamb Bible. First, edge-lined binding does not use a bookboard between the lining and the cover. The two layers are full grain—Goatskin leather for the cover, and Shakira leather (cowhide) for the liner. Second, there is a perimeter stitching that prevents the liner from separating from the cover over time. There is also a golden filigree along the edge of the liner.

Smyth-sewn Binding

The book block is Smyth-sewn, a method which involves sewing through the folds of the individual, collated signatures. This allows your Humble Lamb Bible to open flat from Genesis to Revelation.

Word of God Layout
May 17, 2017

The typical Bible that you buy at your local store is inscribed “The Holy Bible”. But we wanted to create a sense of reverence appropriate for the powerful message that you will hold in your hands. From the detailed craftsmanship to the layout, we wanted you to know that you aren’t holding just any book. You will be holding the sacred “Word of God”.

The layout was designed by our Humble Lamb team and was professionally typeset by Scribe Inc. There are two key elements to the design of “The Word of God”. It will be easy-to-read with a beautiful design, while including reference notes and cross-references that are conducive to your in-depth studies.

Word of God Layout
Designing the Humble Lamb Bible was no easy task. It was designed with mathematical precision and beauty through the use of the Fibonacci Sequence. The Fibonacci Sequence reveals a mathematical relationship found throughout nature called the Golden Ration. This ratio is the basis for the precise geometric balance and harmony. Based on these timeless design principles, the Humble Lamb Bible is beautiful and pleasing to the eye.
Thoughtful Design
Many people do not think of how words are arranged on the page but this is important for visual aesthetics. 45-75 character per line is the perfect range for readability. We have ensured that our text meets this criteria to provide an enjoyable time of study and reading, even for longer periods of time.

The cross-references are accented in deep red and have been placed beside the verse that they correspond with.

As mentioned in our previous newsletter, “The Word of God” is complemented by the artwork of Gustave Dore. His illustrations accompany the appropriate text and help bring the story to life.

Illustrations by Gustave Dore
The Humble Lamb Bible will come with select illustrations from  Gustave Dore. These illustrations will complement your Bible, in a layout specially designed by the hard-working Humble Lamb team. The lovingly created layout will be revealed in future updates, as we can’t divulge all of our secrets at once. This back-breaking work was all done so that you can have a one-of-a-kind Bible for generations to come.
Kickstarter
So far we’ve invested everything we’ve got into this project. Now the only thing standing in our way is the arduous task of printing your stunning Bible. Our printer & binder, Royal Jongbloed, is one of the best found in the universe, but this comes at a cost, literally.

Therefore, we have set our sights on Kickstarter. For those new to the Internet, Kickstarter is an all or nothing fundraising platform, through here you will be able to pre-order the Humble Lamb Bible. If we don’t reach our goal, none of our supportive, dedicated backers will be charged but the world will miss out on an amazing Bible. So how will we reach our goal? By selling 335 Bibles. That’s it.

With only 335 pre-orders, each one of you can have your own copy of the Humble Lamb Bible. So invite your friends, family, and acquaintances to support us, and soon you will have your very own, special edition, Word of God.

Sincerely, The Humble Lamb team.
