Coptic Binding by a-perplexing-puzzle Coptic Binding by a-perplexing-puzzle
My coptic binding book from last semester's bookbinding class. I decorated the cover paper using watercolors, walnut ink, salt and alcohol. I was really happy with how it came out :)

That's a lot of signatures (the maximum I've tried is seven), but the binding looks really tight. Like the long stitches on the covers, and especially the decoration on the covers. Does it have end-papers?

Nope, no end-papers. Yeah, if I remember right, keeping the tension right on the binding was difficult, because you don't want to go too loose, but if you go too tight, the book won't close.

How did you do the long sewing parts on the covers? Would you consider posting a tutorial for this? I just learned coptic sewing, and this looks awesome.
