 Easy Coptic Bookbinding Tutorial

Make yourself a super flexible journal with this easy to follow tutorial, step-by-step. Binding your book with an open spine–a chain stitch or a coptic stitch binding–is a great method when you have book covers that are individual boards instead of completely wrapped around the entire journal. You are basically binding all the signatures and covers together with a connected stitch that holds everything together tightly, but with super flexibility. The pages will open up completely flat and that’s a big reason why this method is so popular. I’m sure you might have seen lots of books on Etsy bound in this way. There are variations to the chain stitch (as with everything) but this is how I go about binding with this technique.
