Coptic bound books are both unique and functional. Because the process requires no adhesive to be applied to the spine, it allows the book to open up to 360 degrees without risking damage to the spine and pages. The ability to open the books completely flat make these ideal for sketchbooks and journals.

In this 7 page ebook tutorial I will walk you through the process of how to create your own hardback journal using the Coptic binding method. This contains step-by-step instructions for the making of covers, creating signatures and binding using a simple chain stitch. The tutorial describes the process for a 5x7 inch hardback journal, although you can adjust the measurements to suit your project.
