This is a bookbinding announcement that I hope may be of interest to some readers of this blog…

I have recently developed a slip cover for the well-loved Pocket Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians (aka the “Little Red Book”), published by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of America. I had been asked to rebind the book but, because it has a staple binding, I was unsure how long it would last without needing to be repaired. A slip cover, by contrast, allows one to repair the book itself and simply reinsert it once more into the cover.

I was quite pleased with the outcome, which can be seen in the photos and in my Etsy shop here. It is bound in genuine, full-grain sheep nappa leather, with the same leather lining on the inside.

To enter this giveaway, please go to this Facebook post and either like and/or share it, and comment. It would also be great if you would like my page if you haven’t already done so!

P.S. I have recently opened a new bookbinding website here, although it is still being developed.

P.P.S. I am hoping to rebind some other prayer books for sale in my Etsy shop soon.



Just to note that I have re-launched my bookbinding shop on Etsy, where I am selling some rather uniquely-bound Bibles. I hope to standardise both the Bibles and Kindle covers available in the near future once I’ve got more leather, but in the meantime I really need to sell these, so please feel free to share if you know anyone interested…
