The Cameo Edition is a classic Cambridge typesetting of the King James Version, originally produced in the 1920s for letterpress printing. It has been widely admired by generations of readers for its solution to the Bible designer's dilemma of readable type in a manageable size. Unavailable for a while, the Cameo Reference Edition is re-issued in response to continued consumer interest, in a new range of binding styles.
The re-origination process has offered an opportunity to tidy up a number of blemishes that had gradually become part of the Cameo image over the lifetime of the edition, especially during the conversion to more modern forms of reproduction. So, while the text presents the same familiar layout and the original Petit Medieval Clarendon type, it is now better represented than in some previous recent printings of the edition.
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.
