Default Bible typeface family

As you probably know, Bibles are printed on very thin paper and with more text per page than most books. So it needs to be very readable. Bible typeface family the name of a typeface designed by 2K Typographic Design. But interestingly I can find no place to buy it

The design house also designed a proprietary typeface for two Bible publishing houses. This font is called "Comfort Print". I don't know if this variation of Bible Typeface or something else, and right now my eyes are too tired to do a side-by-side.

I also found an article about the genesis of Comfort Print.

All this research came about because I was looking at a Bible printed in New Beryl Type at a size so small I should not be able to read it, but I can. I also noticed certain characteristics of the font and tried to search for info several different ways. I found nothing about Beryl Type, but ended up with what you see above.
