  1. And what makes the “Value” Thinline different from a regular Thinline? To get a pricepoint of !3.00 rather than 29.00 something’s gotta give. Was it simply your generosity, a mistake in the size of the printrun, or glue rather than stitching?
    Enquiring minds want to know… Thanks.

  2. Good question! We basically wanted to make an edition that would be really easy and cost effective to buy for others. This is a black letter only edition, there is no concordance, maps, ribbon, or presentation page. It also has a slightly different quality of paper compared to our other editions, which allowed us to get the cost down a bit.

  3. Got one a few months ago and I love it. I’m having issues with the glue on the front and back cover though. Is that a common problem? I’ve been considering getting several more but I’m concerned about this.

  4. Looks very useful! A few comments/queries:

    - does the link need fixing? it didn’t work for me, but this did:


    - the product website says it DOES have the concordance, but here you say it does NOT have it. And the winner is…??

    - should I assume no cross-references either? (sniff, sniff!)

    - could you save even more by losing the gilded edges? Personally speaking, it’s one of my very least favourite features…

  5. I just checked mine and it does have a ~30 page concordance… and there are no cross references.
