Perfect for reading on the move - any time, anywhere, The KJV in 'crosswise' LANDSCAPE format. Finally, a proper pocket-sized Bible that's compact, surprisingly light and offers the full majesty and poetry of the King James Bible in a clear, readable format, with the pages turning horizontally, rather than vertically.
The KJV Transetto Text Edition is not only a new Bible but is a unique book concept. These smart, ultra-modern books are very compact, but nevertheless clear and easy to handle and read. They use lightweight paper and an innovative binding style to include a large amount of reading matter into a small, supremely portable and easy-to-handle format. This revolutionary new publishing concept, first launched in the Netherlands in 2009, is patented worldwide as the dwarsligger(r).
The Cambridge KJV Transetto Edition is the first Bible to be published in this format in English. The book no longer has a conventional left and right page. Its format is landscape, with the text rotated 'crosswise' through 90 , but when the book is open the two pages on view form a single portrait-format 'page' for reading: the Bible text is set in double-column format, and is read downwards across both open pages in the spread. Any book in this format weighs a fraction of its standard book equivalent - and of an electronic reader too.
