The Bible

Back Download

The design of this large-format family Bible realises the task of creating a single-column layout with a relatively large font. A harmonious concept of different text types allows variable margins and the use of an asymmetrical double-page layout. For the notes, a more compact two-column arrangement was applied, which functionally complements the one-column design of the main text. The numbering of the various text styles creates a clear hierarchy and, together with coordinates in the margins, makes orientation through the book easier. The 3,360-page Bible is printed in blue or aubergine hardcover, or in a more expensive leather cover edition.
