Why so many choices for the Handy Size Editions?

Why so many choices for the Handy Size Editions?
With Global Supply chain issues, we went with a European paper that was in stock earlier this year. Many speciality Bible papers are only manufactured once or twice annually and one paper plant was temporarily shut down. Thus, the 31 gsm European paper editions from Korea are a limited run.

Due to the popularity of this layout, we have added some styles with the words of Christ in red. These red letter editions are bound in Korea on 32 gsm paper which will also be the first time the Handy Size format can be purchased in faux leather editions. 

The remaining book blocks from the 1st printing done in the Netherlands were all bound in Shamar Goatskin. All but one style features full yapp. These are in transit and should be arriving in late September. They will all feature the "First Edition" stamp on the inside liner since they were all part of the first printing and will be shipped in a black Bible Armor and not a box. 

Here is a chart we created to help explain some of the basic differences between Handy Size editions.
