The Story
Long stitch binding involves sewing directly through the cover material and is an ancient bookbinding method dating back to the 2nd-3rd centuries and used frequently in medieval times through to the 16th century as a structure for stationery bindings, student books, and almanacs.

It is a simple and robust structure with infinite variations available for the patterns of the sewing, types of covers, and ways in which to add embellishments or closures. The pages lie flat when open making it easy to use for writing or drawing.

In this book, the cover is a leather recycled from protective clothing used for foundry, welding, blacksmithing, etc. Any irregularities in the leather are part of its past life and should not be considered as defects but as qualities that make this book one of a kind.
