In this tutorial, we illustrate a variation on the Long Stitch method. With the traditional method dating back as far as the 13th century BC, Long Stitch binding remains a popular due to the versatility it offers: it allows for a variety of leather, fabric and paper mediums to choose from, and the spine can be easily designed, altered and created. Stitching the text block to a piece of leather, this sewing method creates visible long and chain stitch patterns on the spine adding to the decorative appeal of the book.
