A Gideon Bible

Holy Bible. The Gideons.

Inside cover of a Gideon Bible.
I am slightly miffed that apparently I payed two dollars for a book which appears to have originally been placed in someone’s home or a public place. I assume that the Gideons carried out this secret service for free. And definitely not two dollars.

This book got straight to the point. No publishing information or title page. It immediately refers the reader to verses which they may need under various circumstances. Tiny text drips off each packed page. Though I loathe paying for a service normally given for free, I love the aesthetic of this little book. Fake red leather, golden embossed letters, and tissue paper pages mark it as beautiful addition to a book shelf. To learn more about the actual content  of the Bible, click here.

Thanks for reading,
