Letting in the Light. Log In. Handmade Photo Albums Journals Custom Wedding by LotusBluBookArt. The best way to attach covers to a coptic binding - paperiaarre. You know me, pretty determined about finding and using the best practices for all sorts of things… This week I’m writing about a little detail regarding attaching covers to a Coptic bound book – the hidden diagonal stitch (for the lack of a better term).

the best way to attach covers to a coptic binding - paperiaarre

Have you noticed how the sewing thread in my Coptic bound books enters the covers at the edge of the cover board? It may seem like a very minor thing, but it’s actually something quite relevant to the durability and stability of the finished book. Most modern Coptic bound books I see around the Internet have their covers attached by simply wrapping the sewing thread around the board edge.

I walked through the expo last January and was well aware that, not only were there no other book makers, but that the only other “hand-craft” based business in the entire expo (besides photographers, caterers and cake makers of course) specialized in hand-built, rustic arches under which you could say your vows.

Passend zur Sommerpost, die uns doch nun schon seit einiger Zeit beschäftigt, gibt es von uns heute ein Buchbindetutorial.

ALLtäglich: Secret Belgian Binding

Diese Bindung hat von uns zwar keiner benutzt, aber sie ist ausgesprochen schön - weshalb wir sie hier noch einmal zeigen wollen. Noch einmal deshalb, weil Moni auf ihrem Blog schon einmal ein Tutorial dazu gemacht hat - da damals aber noch ein paar Fragen offen blieben, jetzt nochmal hier in voller Länge und zum mitbinden. ;-) Die Bindung ist einfacher, als sie auf den ersten Blick vielleicht aussieht, braucht jedoch etwas Zeit.

Allerdings ist Zeit ja etwas, was man beim Buchbinden generell mitbringen sollte. Iona Handcrafted Books : Handmade Leather Journals And Photo Albums. Art books and journals. Bookarts: Exposed Tape Binding (Tutorial!) Adventures in instruction!
