With the third typical edition of The Roman Missal, Liturgy Training Publications preserves its commitment to quality of design and materials while ensuring affordability. The gold foil stamp cover design that draws on the history of Christian art is as visually strong, simple, and elegant as it is theologically rich. Interior art portrays narrative illustrations significantly based in scripture and tradition. The cover and binding materials have been chosen for beauty and durability. The Smyth sewn case binding is of the highest quality available and the sturdy cover materials have a soft, luxurious, leather-like feel. The Lexatone® double endsheets strengthen the book, combining modern materials and traditional bookbinding techniques. The combination of theologically rich images, high quality binding, cover materials, endsheets, ribbons, and tabs endow the book with the elegance of old world craftsmanship and the functionality and sturdiness required for everyday use.
