A Quick Look - InTouch NASB Wide Margin & NASB Ref
After nearly 2 mths' wait, my 2 NASBs finally arrived this week. A check on the cartons showed Pos Malaysia seemed to be using some 3rd party contractor to handle part of the delivery. Most surprising of all, they actually used SHIP to ship the shipment from KL to Kch! Literally!
Both came with a nice velvet soft case inside the box. Nice to know they are "protected" enroute as much as possible but once the Bibles are out of the box, these velvet covers don't serve much purpose anymore.
Very nice longish and wide ribbons. InTouch comes with 2 & NASB Ref 1.
Surprised to see that the InTouch version is still printed in the good old U.S of A. While the other is printed in China.
One design I don't quite understand though - why THAT on the back of the beautiful calfskin???
And...despite the fact that the NASB Ref is marketed as ULTRATHIN... it is FAAAAR from being thinline... But I love the "thickness".
