Long stitch binding is a non-adhesive binding method in which a text block gets hand-sewn to a piece of leather leaving the book’s spine exposed. This sewing method creates line and cross patterns on the spine, adding to the decorative appeal of the book.
This binding type is a good starting point for beginner bookbinders looking for a creative way to bind a journal. Long stitch binding dates back as far as the 13th century BC. Yet, still today, it remains a popular binding method due to the versatility it offers: it allows bookbinders to make books using a variety of materials (leather, fabric, paper etc.) and offers great flexibility with regards to spine design.
