The more I use this Bible I like the notes but the translation has verses omitted and I am not fond of that. This is to be expected of more recent translations but I like what is translated at certain points enough to have ordered it.
Very large easy to read print. Our church bought 15 of the Hardcover NAS Giant Print Reference Bibles for Bible Studies for older people to use many of whom are not Christians. 6 liked them so much they bought them for themselves. We will have to do a replacement order. Great to read and the New American Standard is a very accurate translation! Super price and super service! Wonderful value for the money!
Paper quality is good, don't see too much shadow coming through from the other side.
Print quality is good, nice and crisp dark letters.
Font size is typical "giant print" about the same size as all the others I've seen.
The leather is bonded leather and it smells like tar. It literally stinks. Typically when I buy a leather bible the first thing I do after taking it out of the package and flipping through the pages is hold it up to my face and take a deep breath. I'm giving you fair warning. This bible smells more like tar than it does leather. The smell of this bible almost makes me nauseous.
The font face of the verse numbers is modern but the font face of the text is more like times new roman. It doesn't match and somehow that's visually distracting. Some verse numbers are bold not sure why, I didn't bother investigating.
I bought this bible for myself. Didn't really need giant print but I wanted something that was easy on the eyes for long reads. The only thing I'm disappointed about is the quality of the leather. I would not classify bonded leather in the same league as "genuine" leather.
