DCA Bookbinding (Part 4/6)

Following on from last week, we continued with our coptic stitch in this session.

Our cover boards were beautiful and flat for us, as they had been in the press all week, and more importantly they were also super dry!

Like before with sections, we used our little guide to mark out holes for the cover stitches.

Awesome huh? The little v’s are just decorative, and looking up some of the stitches on pinterest there are loads of wonderful stitches you could decorate up a book with.
