The Book of Mormon for Journaling

This was an unexpected project, prompted by a friend looking for an affordable version of the Book of Mormon for a study group that had extra wide margins for journaling, allowing someone to add personal reflections, drawings and whatnot in response to their reading. Deseret Publishing is apparently releasing a Journal Edition next month, at what looks like a very reasonable price, but it’s not out yet, and of course availability outside the United States may be somewhat limited.

So using the public domain Book of Mormon text from Project Gutenberg, I’ve prepared this PDF. The text follows the 1981 LDS edition, but does not include any of copyrighted elements, such as chapter descriptions, footnotes and so on. It’s formatted at A4 size, so anyone wanting a Book of Mormon text with extra wide margins can print this off at home, or have it printed and bound as they desire (spiral would probably be best). I’ve looked at other printing options, but would obviously want to make sure that such is on a non-commercial basis.

As a disclaimer, this PDF is not officially endorsed or distributed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Nor do I lay any claim to ownership of the text. As public domain, this PDF may be freely copied, shared, and printed without restriction.

Edit: I’ve also managed to get it at A5 size too:
