A Fresh New Look for St. Seraphim
Getting ready to wrap up our manuscript of the marvellous life of St. Seraphim by Archimandrite Lazarus Moore, previously published by New Sarov Press over a decade ago. We’ve decided on this new cover design with an intimate and tender icon by Matushka Ann Margitich.
Our overall goal in prepping and designing the manuscript was to make it accessible and appealing to a broad audience while maintaining a strong connection with Orthodox tradition and ethos.The previous publication was done in 1994, when access to technology we take for granted today was probably very limited. We wanted to bring a greater elegance and consistency to the text. It has proved to be a “classic” in Orthodox hagiography and we wanted a presentation worthy of that status.
We chose “Counsels From the Holy Mountain” by St. Anthony’s Monastery in AZ as a style reference, which has a “classic Orthodox” and almost liturgical flavor, mirrored in many of the finer Greek and Russian hagiographical publications. We are in the final draft proofing stage. Artwork and design having been fully completed now. After this and the indexing, we will be ready to go to press! Anticipated release date will be around Aug/Sept, God willing.A pre-sale to raise funds for printing will be announced soon through our newsletter.
