The Cameo Edition is a classic Cambridge typesetting of the King James Version, originally produced in the 1920s for letterpress printing. The beauty of the Cameo is its solution to the age-old problem of providing readable type in a book of manageable size. Unavailable for a while, the Cameo Reference Edition is now re-issued in response to continued consumer interest, in a new range of binding styles.
The reissue has offered an opportunity for the print image to be enhanced, so while the text presents the same familiar layout and the original Petit Medieval Clarendon type, it is now sharper than in printings of recent years. There is a new range of cover styles, including a superb edge-lined goatskin binding with art-gilt edges.
One option includes the Apocrypha which, although originally printed with the Old and New Testaments in 1611 and included in almost every King James Version Bible for 200 years, is seldom found in modern editions.
All the Bibles have a concordance and 15 color maps. The text has pronunciation marks for names and the words of Christ on earth are printed in red.
