Pocket Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians

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.

A New Website

Welcome to my new website, which I am still in the process of setting up. Since moving to Pietermaritzburg in the middle of last year, I have had to re-invent what was previously Langeberg Bookbinding (the site is still up, but will expire before long). I am being fairly focused in the binding work that I do, focusing mainly on selling on my Etsy shop. However, I am also open to doing a limited amount of binding and repair work for local customers, particularly the leather rebinding of Bibles and liturgical books, hence the need for a website.

In addition, I also plan to add resources here that can supplement the material on my Etsy shop.
