The 1928 Book of Common Prayer, bound in black leather, will soon be available from APA.

The Anglican Parishes Association Book Publisher has announced that in addition to reissuing its popular leather-bound BCP/KJV (1928 Book of Common Prayer and King James Bible), it will also be printing a stand-alone Prayer Book bound in leather. 

In describing the book, the publisher writes

The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is beloved by Anglican traditionalists throughout the United States. Unlike later prayer book revisions, it eschews modern language, preserving the beauty and majesty of Archbishop Cranmer's original prose. The Epistles and Gospels are taken from the Authorized Version (otherwise known as the King James Bible) and the Psalter remains that which has been used by generations of Anglicans throughout the world, that of the Great Bible of 1539.

Previously, APA had only issued the Prayer Book in red cloth hardcover, suitable for use in church pews.  The new book is intended for personal use, and its publishers expect that it will be in high demand as an "occasional gift," particularly in the case of baptisms and confirmations.  As such, a dedication page is bound in to the book, prior to the prefatory material.

The stand-alone book will be available for purchase at the Anglican Parishes Association website and is expected in late-December.
