Coptic stitch

One of my old commissions. Had to explain the book binding technique using coptic stitch, in 7 steps. (I learnt coptic stitch from this tutorial~by SeaLemonDIY)
I had never made a tutorial for explaining things before. And I took up the project only because I thought it was something I never did.
I just had to create the illustrations, and the editor was going to add text to the pages.
Though the creative director liked the illustrations, I feel video tutorials are the best when you want to learn something new..

  2. Oh yes! Do check the video link. Its easy to follow. I saw some books where they use thin wooden board(really thin) for the cover sheets. And the wooden textures looked stunning! Im so going to try it some day.
