Alpha binding is a long stitch binding variation in which a text block gets hand-sewn to a piece of leather leaving the book’s spine exposed. This sewing method creates a continuing a-pattern on the book’s spine.
This binding type is a good starting point for beginner bookbinders looking for a creative way to bind a journal.
