Leather-bound ESV-CE Bibles

Update: I regret that I am unable to accept customised orders at present.

I am pleased to announce that I am now able to take orders for rebound copies of the ESV-CE Bible.

As some may know, a Catholic edition of the English Standard Version was published in India last year at the behest of the Indian Catholic Bishops. This is significant for Orthodox and Catholic Christians as there was at that time no version of this translation that included the books that had been omitted from the Protestant canon of scripture. (There had been an ESV with Apocrypha published by OUP, but this is now out of print). However, the agreement with Crossway (the original publisher of the ESV) stipulated that it could only be sold in Asia and Africa.

My own rebound ESV-CE. See the gallery for more examples of my work.

Although some people outside Asia and Africa have been able to order copies directly from the publisher, this has proved difficult for many. However, because I am in Africa I can order copies to rebind, and I got one copy that I rebound for myself in October. There has been some delay in getting more copies, but they have now arrived in this country and I am able to take orders for them.

If you are interested in ordering a rebound ESV-CE, please contact me to ensure that I reserve a copy for you. In addition, please have a look at this page and let me know how you would like your Bible to look. Once we have agreed on the details (including the date of shipping), I will send you a Paypal invoice and will reserve a copy once I have received payment. The price is 135 USD for a basic rebind, which includes international shipping by courier but excludes additional details such as edge colouring and debossed cover designs.
