Schuyler Personal Size Quentel NASB - Due June 2017

Keep watching that calendar. Schuyler is set to release its newest entry in the Quentel series with a new variant of the entry that stated it all, the NASB.

The Personal Size Quentel NASB reduces the height and heft of the original.

The specs are as follows:

  • Available in Natural Grain Goatskin (leather lined) and Calfskin (paste off liner)
  • Same Pagination as the Quentel Series – (all page numbers and format will be identical)
  • Approximate font size: 8.5
  • 4.7″ x 7.1″ x 1″ (120 mm x 180 mm x 25 mm)
  • Line Matching
  • 28 GSM Indopaque paper
  • 2 Ribbon Markers
  • Art-Gilt edging (red under gold, blue under gold for Imperial Blue)
  • 9mm yapp
  • Smyth Sewn
You can pre-order here.

As was the case the the Canterbury KJV, there will be a price increase after the stock arrives - the price you see on the website will not be around much longer. 

Once again, Schuyler is producing both a Goatskin and Calfskin edition. The more economical Calfskin editions proved to be a popular seller for the Canterbury KJV. Schuyler seems set to make Calfskin a regular part of its line. Again, this should be expected given how well the Canterbury Calfskin was received. Frankly, Schuyler deserves a lot of compliments for their Calfskin editions. Jongbloed (Schuyler's printer of choice) often times fails to impress with its Calfskin bindings. Schuyler seems to have worked closely with them to produce something as striking as their Goatskin bindings.

28 GSM is by necessity. It is a better of a loss when considering the 45 GSM (1st Edition) and 36 GSM (2nd Edition) of its larger cousins. GSM is always going to be a negotiating point. The trade-off here seems to be for the dimensions and price point aimed at by Schuyler. The Quentel text block is (thankfully) line matched and this should alleviate opacity concerns, thereby retaining the reading experience of the larger Quentel volumes.

We'll see how this one goes - Schuyler could well launch the rest of the Quentel line in a personal size format.
