The Book of Mormon Heirloom Edition
...the "Heirloom Edition" was designed to provide Latter-day Saint families with an astonishingly beautiful piece of workmanship that delights the eyes and satisfies the desire for a quality, permanent edition of this important latter-day scripture. Printed on quality paper stock, and beautifully illustrated with more than fifty masterful paintings by famed LDS artist Minerva Teichert, this volume represents a major effort, and expense, on the part of Deseret Book. What a beautiful volume this is!

I am giving this book to the youth of our Ward as a wedding gift when they are Sealed in the Temple. It is a perfect gift, and they can keep record not only of the marriage, but missions that were completed and the children that will be join the family. I am so glad that it has come back into print, hopefully it will remain for sale for many years to come.

We have this sitting on a table in our entry way. It is one of our beloved treasures. It is so beautifully embossed. Lovely to look at and fun to open and read because it also contains our family tree. Holding a prominent place in our home, our children look forward to having the family Book of Mormon being passed to one of them. We may have to get more to compensate for all of our kids!

It's missing cross referencing and chapter summary and it is really heavy. Ended up sending it back for return.

This edition of The Book of Mormon is different than what most church members are used to. It's a beautiful book and could be treated like a family heirloom rather than your typical set of scriptures. The artwork that is included is fantastic and the craftsmanship makes it really unique. Happy to see such a nice version of the Book of Mormon!

My Heirloom Book of Mormon arrived today. It is breathtaking to say the least. The quality of the cover, the pages, the gilt edging, the illustrations is just superb. Have just ordered a second copy for a friend, who also thought it a most beautiful book. Well worth every penny.

For decades the family Bible was something treasured and passed down from generation to generation. Important dates and events were recorded in the pages of the family Bible. My own family had such a Bible and when I was twelve my grandfather gave it to the Smithsonian rather than give it to me. So for Christmas this year I bought four copies...I gave one to each of my two married children and I'm saving the other two for my other children when they get married. In the front are pages to record family events just as in the olden days. It's a beautiful book and the new paintings make the pages come alive. My kids were thrilled as I hoped they would be and I recommend it to anyone who would like to share a very special copy of the Book of Mormon.

I'm sad. This is a beautiful book but it is missing cross-referencing that the church added several years ago.

What a beautiful book. I saw it and had to have it. What a great rendition of the Heirloom Bibles. I wish they made a Bible, so I can have a complete set.

This book is gorgeous, beautifully done. It will make a wonderful heirloom piece to hand down to my children and so on. I love how in addition to the births, deaths and baptisms, it includes pages for priesthood ordinances, missions and such unique to our church. Great investment!
