Your Bible could be a work of art. This New International Version Bible features a gorgeous hand-painted cover design and stunning artwork in the page edges. The NIV Artisan Collection Bible is a journaling Bible for visually oriented artists or writers.
When you open the Bible to read from God's Word, you will find artwork illuminating the page edges. When you close the Bible, the image vanishes into the shimmering gold edge. Aspiring artists go beyond appreciating the design on this Bible, the wide margins provide space to write notes or draw your own artwork alongside the Scripture. Each time you revisit your notes or artwork, you can see how you responded the last time you read those verses.
