Example of a Coptic Stitched Book

I thought I would share the coptic stitched book I made today.

  • Binding is hand sewn with hemp cord. 
  • Cover is recycled cardboard and heavy paper. 
  • Inside has three signatures of ten pages each (adding up to a thirty page book).
Initially, my plan for the binding was a simple stitch, but things didn't go as planned. Oh well. I'm learning.
