Can you judge a book by its Spots?
One of the most common questions we have about our replicas is about the blue dots on the edge of the book block (the portion of the book that is the paper) or edge of the book. Like scriptures or finely bound books typically have gold on the edge of the page in the early 1800's it was common to have speckled blue or red dye on the edge of the book block. The Book of Mormon had blue specks that are still visible today. Yet another unique feature of the 1830 Book of Mormon the only edition of the Book of Mormon to have this feature. #1830BookofMormon #Scripturesoftherestoration #JosephSmith#HillCumorah
