This is a hand-crafted, hard-cover, leather slip cover for the popular Pocket Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians, also affectionately known as the "Little Red Book," published by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of America. (See http://www.antiochian.org/orthodox-prayers)

I don't generally recommend using slip covers for properly bound books, but this is a staple-bound book and when I was asked to rebind it I realised that the best thing to do would be to create a slip cover that the existing binding fits into. This means that if the staple-binding deteriorates further, it can be easily repaired and simply re-inserted into the same cover.

This cover is made from genuine, full-grain sheep nappa leather, with the same leather lining inside. It is available in two versions, which you can choose by clicking on the box to the right of the photo:
* Deluxe has an embossed Byzantine Cross on the front cover and the words "Pocket Prayer Book" gold-foiled on the spine.
* Simple has no embossed Cross and no foiling on the spine. It is otherwise the same as the Deluxe version.

This slip cover is currently available in red, burgundy, and black. Please choose the colour you want by clicking the second box to the right of the photo.

Please note that there appears to be a slight difference in size between different version of this prayer book. While the current paper edition is 3.5 inchs x 5 inches, the current vinyl edition is slightly shorter at 4.72 inches. If I don't hear to the contrary, I will assume that orders are for the paper edition, but will gladly make a cover for the vinyl edition if you let me know by sending a message. Please check the size of your prayer book as it is possible that earlier editions may also vary. Just make sure that you let me know if your prayer books is of a slightly different size!

Please note that this is a cover only and does not include the prayer books shown in the photo!
