I don't know if/when there will be an official website for it, but for those interested in ordering a comb-bound edition of the Russian Orthodox Psalter may do so by sending a check for $40 payable to Paradise Press, PO Box 530, Rye, NH 03870. The Psalter's compiler, David James, can be reached via e-mail at jamesdm4 at aol dot com. The Psalter is printed on heavy, durable paper in two colors with illustrations throughout. As mentioned, there is a wealth of additional material attached which typically accompanies Slavonic liturgical Psalters, e.g., all of the Kathisma prayers and hymns, various orders for reading the Psalter, excerpts from Patristic homilies, the Biblical Odes, and the select Psalm verses and Megalynaria for the major Feast Days and Commemorations. It is also worth mentioning that this is a very large volume and not something you can just haul around on trips easily. The comb binding does allow it to lay flat on a desk or stand for easy recitation, however.
