The Illustrator's Notetaking Bible

The Illustrator's Notetaking Bible is an HCSB edition made for those that want to draw, paint, and color in their Journaling Bibles.  This one has over 600 lightly drawn illustrations that you can color or paint.  There's also lots of room to add your own artwork or notes as well.  The edition includes lined margin note areas that allow for neat notetaking.

The paper itself feels like the standard 38gsm that's found in most journaling editions.  It's bonded leather over board and is available in several colors -- the one I read was simple British tan, so it's an ideal gift.  The biblical text is presented in a single column layout with 7.5-8 point font.  It also includes HCSB bullet notes, a reading plan, concordance, and maps.

This Bible makes an ideal gift for the adult coloring folks.
