This Bible was advertised as having a genuine leather cover. However, the cover is nothing like leather. It is a cheap plastic material and it sticks up and does not stay closed. Poor quality for the expensive price.
We have purchased this Bible for my mother and my mother-in-law. They both found reading difficult as they aged and didn't want to stop reading the Bible. They both were happy with this one and were thrilled the print was large enough to see!! It was a bit heavy for my mother-in-law, but that can't be helped!
When the cover read "Giant Print" it wasn't kidding! I find that I can read a lot longer with this size font. I originally had a softcover of this same bible but it was too floppy in my hand. This hardcover is much more stable. The NIV translation is my favorite. The Bible literally comes to life!
