The print quality of the characters is good but not super super sharp, as it looks as if it has been printed from scanned page images. However at the 5 1/4" by 7 3/4" size, the print is sufficiently large to be easily readable. Inside it says that it has been photographically reproduced.
The pages are somewhat thinner than a standard prayer book, but certainly a long way from being tissue paper thin, like you get with some missals. The book is about 1" thick while my 1928 prayer book that I have printed by the Anglican Parishes Association is about 1 5/8" thick.
The book comes with a couple of tassels to mark pages. I have gotten so used to using pieces of post-it note that I wouldn't miss them if they weren't there.
Overall, I recommend this book.
The book is very well made and is fairly portable, with a stout slipcase. I'd much rather have paid a few more dollars for real leather--bonded leather looks ratty after a while--but the protective slipcase might help keep the book in good condition for years.
We got these as gifts for confirmations. The presented to page in the front is perfect for this.
