Thanks to Tony Reinke over at The Shepherds Scrapbook, I was finally motivated to make my first “Blank Bible” modeled after the Bible used by Jonathan Edwards. As you can see, I chose The Reformation Study Bible of the ESV persuasion as my donor.
I have recovered and rebound several of my bibles in leather in the past, so I was a little familiar with the inner workings of book construction and how to dissect one properly. But I must admit, the level of dissection involved in this project was quite a handful. But when all was said and done, it was well worth the effort.
At the bottom of this post, I will provide not only a link concerning the pictures I took during this project, but a link to the source of my inspiration at The Shepherds Scrapbook.
This post and accompanying pictures are by no means an exhaustive description on how to build a blank bible, just my contribution to the original efforts made by Tony. For more detailed information, please stop by the links below to learn how to build one and the original idea and motivation behind it.
