about us

512pp | 258 x 308mm

The publisher’s brief for this book was simple: produce a successful new edition of the best-selling book of all time. We commissioned a team of expert biblical scholars and historians
to interpret the text, negotiating all the controversies and cultural sensitivities
inherent in this major work of faith, and we selected images that both illuminated and provided historical context for the stories contained in the Bible.

Bringing the stories and settings of the Bible
to life was a major project, for which we undertook author research and commissioning, extensive picture searches and selection, map research and commissioned cartography, full design direction and a complete editorial treatment that entailed several phases of consultant review.

“Very easy to read, the pictures keep you
turning the pages and what seemed like
the impossible to get through now seems
quite possible.”
