The bible paper is a thin grade of paper used for printing books which have a large number of pages. Technically it is called lightweight offset paper and is a type of woodfree uncoated paper.
It is used for making Bibles, encyclopedias and dictionaries; as well as some fiction books such as the ones published by the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade. This paper grade often contains cotton or linen fibres to increase its strength despite its thinness.
Bibles, Testaments, Hymnals, inspirational and devotional books are produced mainly in hard case binding configurations.
We produce some 1.5 million books in this category.
