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..


  1. Wow! Shall try making once when bit free... nice instructions!

  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.
