The KJV Turquoise Reference Bible was created in the 1920s and has stood as a superb and well-loved example of classic Cambridge typographic design for ninety years. The text is presented in a large, bold, traditional typeface with cross-references, and the words of Christ are printed in red. The concordance has been freshly typeset for this edition, which also includes a map section and the Translators' Preface - their compelling account of the principles underlying the publication of the KJV in 1611. This Bible is a masterpiece of Cambridge craftsmanship. It is printed on fine India paper and is fully sewn, allowing it to lie flat when in use and adding extra durability. The large format, superior materials and manufacturing excellence make this a perfect family, desk or presentation Bible for Christian ministry.

The Turquoise Edition is Back!
The formerly Out of Print "Turquoise" edition from Cambridge was re-released as the "Presentation Reference Edition" around 2006 and then went right back Out of Print only a few short years later. Since that time, countless KJV Bible customers have sought after the "Turquoise" Edition. So much so in fact that it inspired this informative article: WHY CAMBRIDGE SHOULD BRING BACK THE TURQUOISE KJV
