“Whatever format or print size they choose, readers will find our new KJV Bibles, featuring the Thomas Nelson KJV Font, an absolute delight to read,” says Daniel Marrs, associate publisher, Thomas Nelson Bible Group. “All our new text Bibles use custom, translation-specific fonts for increased beauty and readability.

The newly designed KJV Bibles feature the custom Thomas Nelson KJV Font, designed by 2K/DENMARK, a company renowned for their decades of experience in Bible typesetting and design. Their founder, Klaus Krogh, was inspired in his creation of the KJV font by the font used in one of the earliest Thomas Nelson Bibles from the 1840s, which he discovered in Edinburgh, Scotland. 2K/DENMARK’s Bible typefaces “are designed to serve one purpose; to contain the message of the Word of God.” (Learn more about 2K/DENMARK at
