The Bibles List

I’ve been managing the Bibles list for the past 8 months now, so here is a post dedicated to this extra responsibility. At Hodder, there are many types of Bibles to suit a variety of readers and their specific needs. The below photo is of the NIV Pink Polka Dot Journalling Bible with Unlined Margins and the NIV Black Journalling Bible with Unlined Margins. There is also another one not pictured in the same collection called NIV Journalling Bible for Colouring In with Unlined Margins and Illustrations to Colour In.

Working on Bibles have a few differences to normal publications such as working on a schedule that is much earlier than the normal critical path. Also I need to consider a lot of other specifications such as whether it has a slipcase, o-wrap, belly band, hardback jacket with or without PPC, sticker, sleeve, leather, soft-tone material, cloth, head and tail bands, ribbons, elastic, gilted edges, front and back endpapers, inside cover printing, foil, deboss, spot UV…And then what size and colour (of the material from the swatch book, Pantone reference or if it is four colour printing). It usually follows specific template measurements provided by the printers.
