Coptic binding is an ancient bookbinding process, used as early as the 2nd century AD. It is particularly good for journals and sketchbooks as it allows the book to lie flat, the visible stitching on the spine is a characteristic feature of the technique. Coptic bound books naturally have a small amount of movement as the spine is uncovered.
We also have other sketchbooks available which have been printed and dyed naturally and sustainably, please check them out!
