Book #43

Single Sheet Coptic
Single sheet coptic bindings are explored extensively by Keith Smith in his book Smith's book, "Sewing Single Sheets". My book shown here, called Knots, is an example of a coptic stitch sewn across the spine. The pages are made of book board so a single sheet sewing was needed. Knots includes diagrams for tying a variety of knots; rope is included for practicing.

This book is just excellent fun! I do love how you have included "practice rope" - brilliant!
I'm interested in the idea of binding single sheets with coptic stitch... now I want to find out how!
