The bonded leather smells nice, has a beautiful deep rich color, has just the right flexibility, and feels great in the hand. The size is very convenient, easy to handle, although a bit too big for carrying in a blazer pocket. I find it just right.
The text is of course standard, so not much to say there. But, the typeface on the common prayer side is very normal and easy to read. On the Bible side the text is smaller. However, it is very crisp and clear and easy to read even for these old eyes. Having read previous reviews I bought a magnifier just in case -- not needed. The paper quality is first rate and it comes with five colored ribbons, enough for all uses.
All in all, I could not be more pleased with this edition of the Book of Common Prayer.
A word of caution for those with less-than-perfect vision: keep your glasses handy. The print is very small, particularly for the Biblical texts (the prayer book section uses a slightly larger typeface). It's a small price to pay for such a nice, compact design but it is one that might prove problematic for some readers. Consider that before buying.
Other than the cover, I do not have any complaints about the book. The print is smaller in the bible than the prayer book but not to the point that I need to bring the book closer to my eyes to read it. The book will stay open on the edge of the pew in front of me without my holding it which was important to me as I said my prayers. The amount of ribbons are good as are the different colors. The book could have been a bit larger but I'm not uphappy with the size. Makes it easy for travel.
This would be a great gift bible as the front pages have thick textured paper to record who gave the bible, when the person was baptized, had communion, confirmed and married.
