Special Note: The newest edition of the KJV Cameo Reference Bible (Cambridge) - Goatskin Leather no longer has "Holy Bible" on the front cover.

The beauty of the KJV Cameo Reference Bible from Cambridge is its solution to the age-old problem of providing readable type in a book of manageable size. The Cameo was originally produced in the 1920's for letterpress printing and is now re-issued in response to continued consumer interest, in a new range of binding styles.

The print image has been enhanced, so while the text has the same familiar layout and the original Petit Medieval Clarendon type, it is now sharper than in recent printings, and also features the Words of Christ in Red.

Imitation Leather Edition
The Bible is bound in black imitation leather. Imitation Leather is an attractive cover material with some visual and tactile resemblance to real leather, but at a lower price. This edition is highly decorative, and very flexible, still featuring Smyth-Sewn Pages and a sewn binding, at a more economical price. The Bible has one black ribbon marker and is handsomely finished with Gilt Page Edges.

Goatskin Leather Edition
This special Bible, for the discerning Bible scholar, offers the ultra-compact Cameo text in a superlative flexible black goatskin leather binding, and is edge-lined with Imitation Leather (as only the best bible publishers in the world still do). It is printed on a smooth, opaque and resilient paper with Art-Gilt (red under gold) Page Edges, and includes two red ribbon markers to help find the reader's place.

    Handy sized Bible. Large enough to have type font that is readable and small enough to easily carry almost anywhere. Very good carry along bible. The included concordance is quite useful

    Favorite unique version of the Cambridge Cameo

    This particular bible has been around since the early ‘20s. Many different bindings and materials have been used in that time. This happens to be one of my favorite handsize bibles. I have several versions including this one. For the price and the unique construction the Black Imitation Leather version makes it jump out from the crowd. Using faux leather to reduce the cost, they added quality where it is needed. Good opaque paper, gold gilt page edges, edge lined, perimeter stitched, and the best red letter on the market. <br><br>

    Excellent personal sized bible

    I am particularly fond of Cambridge KJV bibles. I'm also particularly fond of words of Christ in red. I jumped at the chance to purchase this reissued red letter Cambridge Cameo bible in the letter press text. <br><br>This bible has the black goatskin leather cover with red/gold art guilded edging of the text block. The block is Smyth-Sewn. This hand sized bible will last for decades. The beautiful goatskin cover is soft, supple, extremely flexible, durable, and a pleasure to hold in my hands. The Cameo bible, with words of Christ in red, reminds me of the early Cambridge, National and World Press leather bound bibles of the 1920s-40s. The text is my beloved KJV with words of Christ in red. As far as I know, the Cambridge Cameo is the only red letter Cambridge bible today.
