There are a few interesting qualities of the vowel points and cantillations. For one example, the qamets is rendered as a dot below a horizontal line. The editor notes that is how the qamets appears in the manuscript, and it is also how it was printed in Biblia Hebraica Kittel. The atnah and some other te'amim have slightly different shapes but overall the effect is elegant.
The ketiv and qere follow the entirely logical method of printing the qere in the margin, pointed, and the ketiv in the text, unpointed. While this is a variation from the manuscript, it makes things easier for the reader.
Chapter and verse numbers are in the margin, using Arabic numerals. They are small enough to be unobtrusive but large enough to be easy to find. (Note the chapters and verses follow the Hebrew Bible, not the English Bible!)
The paper is a beautiful cream color, thick enough that there is hardly any ghosting. A big improvement over the thin bible paper used for some Bibles!
Everything about this Bible is intended for reading. What's not to like?
And did I mention it's beautiful?
A new student of Biblical Hebrew should get the Reader's Hebrew Bible. A scholar doing careful exegesis or textual criticism should get BHS. Someone who wants to spend some quality time reading the Hebrew Bible should get this one.
