In this style of binding, 6 signatures get hand-sewn to a piece of leather leaving the book’s spine exposed. This binding method can easily be adapted to create a variety of shapes and patterns on the spine, adding to the journal’s decorative appeal.
In this easy-to-follow guide we illustrate how to make an A6 journal measuring approximately 10.5 x 14.8cm/ 4.1 x 5.8”. This style of binding is ideal for creating travel journals and planners, wedding guest books and photo albums, and the size can easily be adjusted.
