Japanese Bookbinding Booklet. New and updated notes for creating your own Japanese stab bound book.

Japanese Binding is a great introduction to decorative binding and allows you to compile separate sheets of paper into one bound volume. In this booklet you will be taught the Kikko Toji (Tortoise Shell Binding) stitch, one of 4 stab binding techniques. The stab binding technique is perfect for your favourite recipes, hand written poems, or sketches perhaps.

You can learn more about the history of this lovely technique here.
