It is a non-glue binding and the sections are sewn directly through holes in the cover material. This sewing method creates a staggered line pattern visible on the spine. There are many ways artists elaborate on the simple longstitch binding. You can design your own stitching pattern, alter the length of the stitches to form your own pattern, use multiple colored threads ... you are only limited by your imagination!Though some longstitch bound book covers are just trimmed to the edge of the book block, there are a variety of ways to fold over one side of the cover and fasten it. You can play with the shape of the flap, the closure style, you can decorate or embroider... Buttons can be stitched into the binding and a thread attached to the cover flap. A slit can be cut into the front cover and a strip from the back cover can be slipped through the slit... anything works, if it keeps your journal closed!📌 If you want to have your own bookbinder's tool kit (last photo), please add it to your order. Note that it is 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐝 for completing the book of the kit (although helpful), but it is essential for your next books. It contains: - Stainless Hardened 𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐞𝐥 𝐄𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐑𝐮𝐥𝐞𝐫 of 30cm. In metric with 𝐜𝐦 & 𝐦𝐦 𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬, for easy precise calculations and flowless cuts. - 𝐒𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐂𝐮𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐚𝐭 A4 size with line guides - Plastic paper cutter with 𝟗𝐦𝐦 𝐰𝐢𝐝𝐞 𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐛𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐞. It has a slit for snapping off blunt blades and security button fro safe cutting. - Black Graphite 𝐰𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐢𝐥 from recycled wood with 𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐫 - 𝐋𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐛𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫'𝐬 𝐀𝐰𝐥 with steel blade and wooden handle - Light 𝐏𝐚𝐩𝐞𝐫 𝐅𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐞𝐫 / Creaser with corner rounding edge 📌 If you want to bind your book with more pages, please buy this add-on: https://etsy.me/39lDtGuYour book will be A5 size (14.8x 21 cm - 5.83" x 8.27") and it will be great as a sketchbook, a journal, an art journal, a diary or even a gift to a loved one.

Very easy kit to complete. Love the unique buttons! This is my 2nd kit purchased. A friend saw the completed journal & wanted 1 for her! :). My only comment is I prefer the string in the green journal. (The orange kit is as described but the string to close the journal is not as flexible as the one for the green. A small detail…)
Response from Myrto
