Making Short Work of the Long-Stitch
A multi-signature, non-adhesive binding with exposed sewing on the spine, the long-stitch structure is relatively quick and simple to bind; yet once the basics are learned, limitless creative interpretations are possible. This workshop teaches the basic long-stitch technique and demonstrates how high-quality materials, used thoughtfully, increase the tactile and visual impression of a hand-bound book. Participants incorporate a leather spine, handmade paper covers, hand-colored linen thread, and decorative endsheets to create an elegant variation of the versatile long-stitch binding. Space is limited to 15 participants.
