As noted in a couple of recent posts, Schuyler has been considering a premium edition of the Revised Standard Version. In recent social media and email updates, they expressed 95% certainty about publishing the RSV. Today, they officially confirmed their plans to typeset and publish the RSV in their signature Quentel format. They have created a web page dedicated to their RSV project with all the details on the upcoming edition. According to an email update from Schuyler this morning, typesetting work will begin in November, with an expected publication date in August 2021.
Schuyler Quentel bibles are known for exquisite craftsmanship. Along with R. L. Allan, Schuyler is one of the best-known publishers of premium bibles in the protestant market. Their forthcoming RSV will be their first attempt at publishing a bible with the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical books.
The Quentel series of bibles has been designed primarily for easy readability (here is a brief description on the Schuyler website). As such, it is not designed to be a thinline or portable edition. It combines a bold font with opaque paper and line matching to make an edition that is comfortable to read for extended periods.
According to today’s email from Schuyler, the new RSV’s “typesetting will be similar to the Quentel, but we may spice things up a bit for this one!”
