Coptic binding or Coptic sewing comprises methods of bookbinding employed by early Christians in Egypt, the Copts, and used from as early as the 2nd century AD to the 11th century. The term is also used to describe modern bindings sewn in the same style.

When to use Coptic stitch for book binding?

I think it’s a great method for when you have book covers that are individual boards instead of completely wrapped around the entire journal spine area.

What’s the best way to start a Coptic stitch?

To start your coptic stitch, cut your thread in one long piece and string it through your needle to get ready to sew. Now it’s sometimes hard to estimate how much thread you will need. But you don’t want to run out, because tying knots half-way just makes it a harder process and weaker binding.

How many signatures do you need for a Coptic Book?

There is no limit to the number of signatures that you can include in your book. The number of signatures will directly correspond to the number of final pages. For example, a book with 10 signatures will have 160 useable interior pages. If you are new to Coptic binding, it’s generally best to start off with fewer signatures.
