…books! Not only am I making boxes to present my images, I am attempting another binding method. As you might remember, I have done Japanese Stab binding and Accordion binding. I am now trying Coptic binding. This is a binding that allows a number of signatures and a front and back cover but no spine. Here’s a link to the tutorial I followed: http://www.tortagialla.com/2010/08/16/chain-or-coptic-stitch-bookbinding-tutorial/
It’s very easy to do. I struggled a bit with a straight needle on my prototype so a curved needle for a larger attempt would make this much, much easier. What’s really nice about this type of binding is the fact that it lays flat – something that is important when displaying my work.
