I purchased this Bible for myself and was impressed with the additional material in the front section, the size of the Bible and the cover. However, the paper is so very thin that the print not only from the next page but the following page bleeds through making it difficult to read which is the reason for owning a Bible. I have a number of Bibles and this is by far the worst for reading due to the thinness of the paper used.
I purchased this item as a gift and opted to have it personalized with the child's full name. I was very please with the quality of the Bible and liked the box it came in. I was however a little disappointed that there was gold embossing ink smudged below the name.
This Bible is beautiful and a great Catholic Bible. The attached book marker ribbon is pink. It does not say that in the description. I had it personalized on the front and it is gorgeous. Perfect for a Catholic girl/woman.
I purchased two of these bibles. one for a girl and one for a boy. When I received them I was disappointed to find that the ribbon was pink, not a suitable choice for a boy. It would have been a better choice if it was a gender free color. I do not feel I can present the bible to the boy for obvious reasons. Unfortunately I had the bibles personalized and most likely cannot be returned. Also the print was very small and might be difficult for some youngsters to read. Some pictures could have been included as well.
