This is a Thomas Nelson 3015 NKJV thinline text block. Thomas Nelson doesn't produce the Signature Series bible anymore. They were a nice bible. You can find them from time to time but if you find the thinline editions they're expensive. On eBay a nice Signature Series can go easily for $500 to a $1,000. I was asked if I could make a model similar to it. This is my attempt. While maybe not the best it does look similar. The Signature Series editions featured three raised hubs on the spine. The thinlines were about an inch thick. Due to the thinness of the spine when I tried stamping Holy Bible on it I didn't get the letter stamping just right and the "E" in Bible is off the spine just a little. I fear I didn't get enough glue in the center of the front cover. If you curl the cover you can see a bit of a crease because I don't think I got enough glue between the cover and liner. This has a tooled line around the outer edges of the cover. The bible color scheme I think is the best. Black cover with a red liner. This one has two ribbons as do the TN Signature Series editions.
