Cambridge’s Pitt Bibles were originally launched in the 1930s, in the wake of the typographic revival which took place in England after the First World War. They were notable for their slimness – achieved by using a typeface specially cut by the famous Times typographer Stanley Morison for Cambridge University Press. This edition features Red Letter Text.
Now the KJV edition has been freshly typeset as part of the current generation of Cambridge Pitt Minion Reference Bibles. In these, the text is presented in paragraph style, using a modern font that has many qualities in common with the traditional Bible typefaces. In the Pitt Minion design it delivers the characteristic combination of clarity with economy of for – producing a slimline Bible that is exceptionally clear and easy to read. The edition includes 15 newly designed colour maps, and a Reader's Companion (combining some of the features of a traditional concordance and dictionary).
