More Blank Bibles

Todd at Experiencing Reformation shares how he made a blank Bible. (A blank Bible involves taking a printed Bible and rebinding it while inserting blank pages for extra note-taking space).

He started with a large-print Pew and Worship ESV, removed the binding, took the pages to Staples (where he says they used a laser to cut the pages), and then inserted blank paper between the Bible text. The result is an eight-volume spiral-bound Bible. Here’s an intermediate stage:

Stacks of print Bible pages and blank sheets of paper are ready for collating.

Todd links to The Silent Holocron, which embarked on a similar project back in November. (We’re not sure how we missed it. Sorry!) The five-part epic:

  1. Removing the cover.
  2. Cutting the paper.
  3. Stuffing.
  4. Punching and binding.
  5. A cautionary tale.

And, of course, Tony Reinke is the inspiration for many blank Bible projects.

All these posts are full of practical tips if you want to create a blank Bible of your own.
