The text is a comfortable reading size, equally useful for public reading or personal devotions. It is printed on Bible paper, and bound in burgundy French Morocco leather.

I love the Bible formatted into a single-column...much easier on the eyes. Even if you consider the text in this Bible small (which I don't), it is much easier to read due to the single column format.
The single-column format makes this like a regular book, and feels like you are reading much faster than with the standard two-column. Two-columns are used because they are cheaper to produce (less paper, etc.)
The dark maroon leather cover was a little stiff out of the package, but seems to be softening with more and more use.
It would have been nice to add a few maps, an index, etc, but they were not promised so I wasn't expecting them.
I will never use a two-column again!
Update: The only drawback I have found since purchasing this Bible is the lack of marking ribbons. There is only 1 ribbon...it could use more.
Now, to the nuts and bolts of the matter. When I saw and ordered this bible, my anticipation was seeing how the single-column format reads! The font even allows for me to set my glasses down - this format is so readable. The poetry and prophecies seem much more cohesive and have a good flow in this format. I like how easily I read the words in the 'tough' reading sections - like numbers. Reading Song of Songs and 1Cor 13 is smooth. One minor issue - I wish the spine margins were a little wider so the words wouldn't have the slight curve when reading the left pages - that may work itself out over time. I will follow-up after some use of this bible.
Did I tell you about great scent and feel of this bible?
This Bible is not a study Bible but only the Bible which purists may appreciate. The only thing I would change would be its thickness but to achieve that the font would need to be smaller. I would choose the larger font over a thinner Bible.
This leather edition looks and feels like it will serve me well for many years and make reading the scriptures all the more a joy.
