Zondervan Releases Artisan Collection Bibles Featuring the Work of Artist Olivia Joy

February 2020 — Following the success of the first line of NIV Artisan Collection Bibles, Zondervan Bibles, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, is excited to announce the release of their new NIV and NRSV Artisan Collection Bibles.

Exquisite from the inside out, the NIV Artisan Collection Bible and NRSV Artisan Collection Bible will delight you with their gorgeous covers created with a layered alcohol ink painting technique. The printed cover showcases hand-painted flair and foil accents.

“Our Artisan Bibles have inspired thousands of readers to see the beauty in God’s Word. These new editions in our second iteration will do the same, and in a unique way because of the one-of-a-kind art technique that local artist Olivia Joy uses,” says Melinda Bouma, vice president and publisher of Zondervan Bibles. “And we are thrilled to expand this beautiful line of Bibles into the NRSV translation, providing NRSV readers with beautiful Bibles in their translation of choice.”

Each page of these Bibles has lightly ruled, wide margins, inviting you to journal, reflect, take notes, and create art. As you start reading, let your eyes relax as you take in more of God’s Word with the exclusive Zondervan Comfort Print® typeface, carefully designed with custom fonts to be easy and enjoyable to read.
