NIV Ruby Bibles Coming Soon…

I recently got some wet proofs in for the NIV Ruby Journalling Bible. This is CMYK printed directly on to silver foiled paper creating a sophisticated and shimmering ruby effect – wowee!!! The final product will have an additional debossing special finish.

There will also be two other editions of the NIV Ruby Bibles (Thinline and Pocket) which have other unusual finishes. The reason for such extravagance is that New International Version Bibles will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary and glistening rubies are the perfect jewel to mark the occasion.

I can’t wait to see the three finished products in September 2019. It is going to look spectacular!!!

The Bibles List – The 2017 Update

Originally, managing the whole of the Bibles list was for maternity cover but this has now become an additional part of my role. Below are some examples of the Bibles that I have worked on this year.

NIV Large Print Single-Column Deluxe Reference Bible: Teal Soft-tone

Special finishes include a textured soft tone material with debossed floral details.

Lovely matching alternating white and purple head and tail bands and purple ribbons.

Inside there are colour coordinated and patterned endpapers. A beautiful Pantone purple here!

NIV Tan Single-Column Journalling Bible

This trendy Bible is printed on lovely textured paper with a matching dusky blue Pantone dyed elastic.

Similar blue Pantone for the simple endpapers.

Deep blue head and tail bands and ribbons complete the overall look.

NIV David Suchet Audio and Large Print Leather Bible (Gift Edition)

Since I’ve worked at Hodder and Stoughton, I have been working on numerous versions of David Suchet Bible products. But this one is the most expensive, luxurious and heavy! It contains a gold foil stamped and grey cloth covered slipcase, black leather Bible and the 6 CDs in a wallet.

There is an extra detail of the rich red ribbon attached to the CD wallet. This matches with the ribbons on the actual leather bible to keep the product consistent and smart.

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.
