Artisan Collection Bible, NIV An Honest Review

Artisan Collection Bible, NIV 

Published by Zondervan

As a member of the Bible Gateway Blogger Grid (BG²), I received this Bible free in exchange for my honest review.

Physical characteristics:
This Bible features lines on each page for journaling, consisting of about the outer third of each page. This provides generous room to write study notes, thoughts, or even illustrate directly onto the pages of scripture. The size of this Bible is great to carry and lays open fairly flat on my lap. The pages are dark-gold “art-gilt” edged and not as thin as many Bible papers, making it ideal for journaling. The color of the paper is a creamy yellow, not stark white, making it easy and comfortable to read. The cover is a beautifully designed hardcover, with watercolor swashes and a canvas/cloth-like feel. There are also two attached ribbon bookmarks. The print is Zondervan’s Exclusive NIV Comfort Print typeface, in 9.5 point print size. The scripture references and page numbers for each page are located at the top outside edges – making it easy to quickly find the passage of scripture I am looking for.
Content considerations:
This Bible is designed specifically as a personal journaling Bible, without in depth notes, references, or even the concordance of a typical Study Bible. However, footnotes on specific passages are scattered throughout, as well as a table of contents at the front, and a table of weights and measures at the back. There are also a few lined pages for Notes included in the back.
Overall, I highly recommend this Bible.
