A Third Way in the Print versus Digital Battle

lexham

In a recent blog post, Logos Pro Mark Ward took a both-and approach to the print vs. digital argument, holding that some resources are designed for a digital medium and others work better as a physical book you can hold in your hands. We agree, but we’d like to add a third option: print and digital.

For a little more than two years, Lexham Press has been publishing many of our titles in print. And now, for select Lexham Press and Kirkdale Press titles available in print, you can save when you buy the digital and print editions together.

Solid content, beautifully designed

We take pride in the care and attention needed to create beautiful, high-quality books. And people have noticed. Just the other day, in his review of Geerhardus Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics, Joey Parker took an entire paragraph to sing the praises of the print edition of this title.

The editing of this book is simply outstanding. The dust jacket is very nicely designed and looks good on a bookshelf. The book itself has a high quality binding on it. The text itself is very crisp and clear. I read a lot and have come to notice that not all paper and ink are alike and the quality of the print in this book makes it very easy on the eyes during extended reading. Overall, I am very pleased with this work and am thankful for the publishers, editors, and translation work. This is an excellent resource for the church and I highly recommend it.

This marriage of solid, biblical content with aesthetically pleasing design is in our roots. We began as a digital-first publisher, producing innovative resources for Logos Bible Software, maximizing both form and function. We put the same thoughtfulness and pride into creating print books that we do when building digital volumes.

Both-and-and

Are you thinking about getting a Lexham Press title? Now, you have a choice—print, digital, or both. We don’t expect everyone to get both formats. But for those of you who have a huge print library at home or in the office (myself included), now you can add to it and have the resources available to you in your Logos Library. Do you want to recommend a book to a friend but they’re not a Logos user? Give them a print copy.

If you’ve already invested in Lexham Press titles for Logos, we haven’t forgotten about you either. If you already own one of our titles in Logos format, you’ll receive a discount if you want to purchase the print edition of that title, too. It’s our way of saying thanks for being an “early adopter.”

For the first time ever, Lexham Press print titles are available for purchase on Logos.com—see all the titles available now.

    I would love to see a discount if you buy say the digital first and then decide to buy the print edition, similar to what Amazon does with you buy the print book you can get the digital at a discount.

      Ken,

      I’m glad you mentioned that. If you’ve already purchased the Logos edition of a Lexham resource and then decide to buy the print, you’ll receive a 15% discount off the print edition. This discount is applied in your cart.

      Thanks!

    Ok I looked at the available books. Due to the large volume of books I have in my library I’m not sure what I have purchased. Is it possible to have the buttons grayed out, like on the main Logos website, when we already own a book? This sure would make things easier and expedite purchases.
