For those who may want to know, the TruTone Brown/Walnut edition comes in a clamshell cardboard box, not a slipcase like the hardcover cloth-over-boards edition (and it really is honest-to-goodness cloth over boards, not paper).
The TruTone has rounded page corners and gilded page edges; the hardcover has right-angle page corners and plain white page edges.
Both editions have two brown ribbon markers.
The TruTone has a rounded spine and the Trutone material is pleasant to handle. The dark material covers the entire back of the book, the spine, and one-third of the front cover of the book; the lighter-colored material is used only on the front cover. The spine is blind-stamped with the words "Holy Bible," "ESV," "English Standard Version," and "Crossway," and there is brown stitching around the edge of the covers and on the front of the volume as part of the "portfolio" design.
The TruTone edition has plain light brown end papers; the hardcover has a diamond-patterned light brown and grey endpapers. Marbled endpapers, suitable to each edition, would have picked the design of the book up a notch.
The text-block, of course, is exactly the same in both, as is the paper weight, which is light flexible bible paper.
It seems to me that the experience of reading the hardcover edition is more like reading a well-crafted book; reading the TruTone edition is more like reading a well-crafted bible. All the visual and tactile cues of the hardback say "book," while those of the TruTone say "bible."
The TruTone's rounded spine and flexible cover make the book rest comfortably in the hand. Both it and the hardcover edition lay open easily and seem to "present" the text for reading.

I've been wanting something like this for a long time, so I got this as soon as I found out about it. It came in the mail today, and I'm very happy with it. It's got a nice looking and nice feeling leather cover on it. It fits nicely in the hand. It stays open when you lay it down. It's a good comfortable size for holding it and reading it.

Even though there are no chapter and verse divisions, it nevertheless does have paragraph divisions. It's basically like reading a book, which is how it ought to be read anyway. Not having the chapter and verse divisions is a boon, and I highly recommend it.

The last reviewer complained about the bleed through of the text. You can see a lot of the text on the opposite page when you're looking at the poetic books (e.g. Psalm, Lamentations), but I don't think it's so bad that it makes it hard to read. I don't really notice it at all in the non-poetic sections. It's only noticeable in the poetic books because the lines don't run the full width of the page, and you can see the opposite page text in the blank edges beyond the lines.

As soon as I heard Crossway was publishing this Bible I knew I had to get my hands on it. I can get so distracted with all of the references when reading that I spend so much time moving around the Bible that I lose what I was reading in the first place. The distractions are completely removed from this Bible. It reads just like a book should. I am so pleased with the bright white paper and the line matching. I am in the book of Luke -- reading thru the Bible --and found it wonderful to read through the book of Luke this way. Thoroughly enjoying it! I haven't spent any time in the Psalms yet where others have said the words can show through some. Very pleased with the broader text so far. I also recovered my Bible in a wonderful rustic red top grain leather - accents the book titles and chapter markings at the top of the page. So, not commenting on the cover, but I will tell you that Crossway makes a QUALITY Bible! I have removed hundreds of Bible covers and Crossway publishes well made Bibles! This Bible will last me my lifetime and then some.
