We recommend the following basic elements to get a high quality Bible or a New Testament.
Page size — width x heighth
We have to choose the size of the page before starting the typesetting. The basic suitable page sizes are:
For a Bible: from 145 to 148 mm x 210 or 215 or 220 mm
For a NT: 116 x 180 mm or from 122 to 126 x 186 mm
[1 inch = 25.4 mm]
For easier reading at the center, it is highly advisable to have the margins slightly larger at the center than at the outside.
Number of pages
For a Bible: 1300 to 1450 pages
For a NT (without the Psalms): 650 to 800 pages
For a NT with the Psalms: around 896 pages, as appropriate
Size of the type
For a Bible: around 8 pt, as appropriate
For a NT: 10.5 pt to 11.7 pt
For a Bible: in 2 columns
For a NT: in 1 column
Note: depending on the case, we can accept specifications other than the standard ones described above.
