Suggestions

I really wish the print was a little darker and the paper slightly thicker. I use Micron pens to write in my Bibles and in the Humble Lamb Bible I am having to use a pencil to avoid bleed through. Otherwise I love the Bible.

Beautiful Bible!

This is the first NKJV Bible that I have ever owned. Ever since Humble Lamb came out with their Bibles, I had wanted one; and I finally made the plunge. It was difficult to choose either the blue or the Amethyst, but the Amethyst won out. I was so excited to get this Bible when it was shipped to me, and I wasn't disappointed! The leather is soft and feels wonderful in one's hands, and the art gilt and ribbons just complements the Bible so very well! And then there's the Dore' prints...they just add such a nice element to this premium Bible: it makes me just WANT to read it, which is what the Humble Lamb team had hoped to do. The box that the Bible came in is elegant itself, and although I don't keep the Bible in it all the time, I will use it when traveling with it or in like manners. Still, I have the beautiful box when and if it is needed; and I kept the papers, too, that went around the Bible when it was shipped in case I might need that some day as well. I've already been reading this Bible, and again, I haven't been disappointed. Thank you, Humble Lamb team, for making such an awesome Bible!

Beyond Amazing.

This Bible is of an amazing quality and great detail. I can see just how much work went into it. It is a joy to hold and I will treasure it for years to come. The Word of God to have and to dig deeper everyday.

A beautiful product, highly recommended

This Bible is simply beautiful. Paper translucency is minimal, and the quality and brightness are just right for Bible reading. The engravings, though not always true to the text (there is considerable artistic license taken) are as clearly printed and free of plate damage as I can recall for the Dore set of pieces. And, the most important detail, the goatskin (calf-lined) cover is gorgeous, soft and durable. A beautiful product you should get while it is still relatively affordable.

Build Quality

A Handcrafted Bible

Hand-crafted Premium Bibles

We've been very careful in choosing the best binding methods for the Humble Lamb Bibles. Each Bible has been individually handcrafted to meet the highest standards of quality.

We have included an international lifetime warranty on manufacturer's defects with each purchase. Learn more here. 

 

Color Variations

Humble Lamb Bibles

These Bibles are available in three distinct colors: Amethyst, Cardinal Red, and Royal Blue. The color relates to the art-gilt and ribbon variation. Each Bible contains three 10mm ribbons.

 

Book Spine

Raised hubs on Bible

A few centuries ago, books were only for the aristocrats, and every well-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

Humble Lamb Art-gilt Word of God

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

 

Edge-lined Bound 

A rare but highly durable method of binding is used in the Humble Lamb Bible. First, edge-lined binding does not use a book board between the lining and the cover. The two layers are full-grain Goatskin leather for the cover and full-grain calfskin leather. 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

Smyth-sewn Humble Lamb Bible

The book block is Smyth-sewn, a method that involves sewing through the folds of the individual, collated signatures. Not only does this method give great durability to the book block, but it also allows your Humble Lamb Bible to open flat from Genesis to Revelation.

 

Paper 

High-opacity Bible Paper

The paper chosen is 30 GSM high-opacity Bible paper. The high opacity helps with the ghosting/see-through of the ink. By choosing 30 gsm Bible paper it allowed us to fit 1,800 pages in a 1.5 inch thick Bible.  

The Design

THE WORD OF GOD

the Word of God by Humble Lamb

The typical Bible that you buy at your local store is inscribed "The Holy Bible". Not only did we want to create something different, 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 and design was created by our Humble Lamb team. 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.

The Golden Ratio

Golden ratio Bible

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 Ratio. This ratio is the basis for the precise geometric balance and harmony of our Bible. Based on these timeless design principles, the Humble Lamb Bible is beautiful and pleasing to the eye.   

Thoughtful Design

Thoughtful Bible design

Many people do not think of how words are arranged on the page but this is important for visual aesthetics. 45-75 characters per line is the perfect range for readability. We have designed the Bible so that our text meets this criterion, ensuring an enjoyable study and reading experience, 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 for ease of use.

Gustave Dore

Gustave Dore Humble Lamb

The Humble Lamb Word of God is complemented by the artwork of Gustave Dore.  His illustrations accompany the appropriate text and help bring the story to life.

"Gustave Dore was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100,000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old, averaging 6 sketches per day for each day he lived. Even though he was an untrained, self-taught artist, who never used a live model, and who could not sketch from nature, his work is considered some of the most important in the entire engraving art world (Gustave Dore)."

"As a child, young Dore was an avid artist and earned his way as an illustrator in a Paris bookshop, publishing his first drawings when he was 15 years old. His young age and great talent drew much attention, which led to newspaper and journal articles written about the “child illustrator,” and generated further interest in the artist. As an illustrator, Dore created engravings for the books of Balzac, Rabelais, Milton, Dante, Edgar Allen Poe, and Lord Byron. He was commissioned to illustrate a version of the English Bible, which was extremely popular, allowing for the foundation of his own gallery, the Dore Gallery (Gustave Dore)."

The Leather

 

Cover 

Humble Lamb Bible Goatskin Leather

When creating the Humble Lamb Bibles, we chose only top quality leather to protect and encase your Bible. For the outside cover, we have chosen full-grain Goatskin leather. Full-grain goatskin leather is considered, by many, to be the best leather for Bibles, without getting into exotics. Although more expensive, it is an essential part of Humble Lamb's Bibles.  

Full Grain leather comes from the top layer of the hide which has ALL of the grain, therefore, FULL grain. The surface of the full-grain leather becomes more burnished and beautified with continued use.

Inside Liner

We also gave much attention and care to the materials chosen for the interior liner. Although most Bibles often overlook this very important element of the Bible, we made sure to outfit it with a premium full-grain Calfskin leather.

 

Uniqueness 

Due to the natural variation in animal hide, no one cover is the same. The uniqueness of the hide makes sure that you have an exclusive and one-of-a-kind Bible. 

 

Flexible. Supple. Enduring.

This double-leathered masterpiece is sure to be your companion for many years to come.
