So I produced a format of the Book of Mormon for journaling recently, with freely downloadable PDFs in A4 and A5 for anyone who wants to print it out and bind it. I was anxious to see what it looked like in the flesh, however, so I had a copy of each printed through Lulu (with a cover I swiftly put together). Although it took a little while to print, they arrived today:
You can see how the texts on the inside here. They’re coil-bound so that they can lie open flat:
Just the A4:
And then in comparison with the A5:
I felt that in the A5 printing the inside margin was just a little too close to the coil binding. So I’ve adjusted the A5 PDF (and my Lulu file) to move a couple of extra millimetres from the outside to the inside margin. That should be more pleasant on the eyes, and it otherwise appears exactly as shown here.
All in all, I’m quite pleased with the results, especially for a project that I did within 20 hours. Hopefully this format will be useful for those looking for a Book of Mormon for journaling or note-taking.
