Awesome layoutUser Review - Christianbook.com
Crossway’s ESV Single Column Legacy Bible has a beautiful layout with the design philosophy of the perfect page. It has wide margins, thick paper, and a large font. Made with readers in mind, Crossway has set a new standard in page layout. Cover and Binding The cover a two-tone brown TruTone (a soft imitation leather) with paper liner. I was able to curl it around in any shape I wanted and it went back to lying flat. To me it feels like calfskin. I love the look and feel of the grain.

The text is printed with line-matching, so the lines of text line up with the text on the backside of the page.

It follows the renaissance concept of the perfect page, with roughly a 2:3 ratio page geometry, and looks great. It is unique for a Bible with section headings. This is a wide-margin edition, but instead of the section headings placed within the text, they are placed in the margins. This helps in readability. I was able to read without any distractions or disruptions between paragraphs. Since they are in the margin, they do take up some of the writing space. Moving the headings to the margins in order to impro ...
Excellent bible from crossway.User Review - Christianbook.com
Excellent "take to church" bible. The legacy layout, text size, and font make following along and reading aloud so much more enjoyable. I'm pretty sure this bible will last me the rest of my life. Glad to see it was printed in Italy not China. Shipping was super fast.
