Kit & Caboodle Coptic Bookbinding Kit with 1:1 Online Workshop.

Get your decorative bookbinding hobby off to a great start with this Coptic Binding Kit. 1:1 guidance is available to help you through each step.

Coptic Binding is a more intricate decorative binding than Japanese binding. It allows you to open out the book completely flat which is very useful for sketchbooks. It’s perfect for your favourite recipes, hand written poems, or sketches.

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

  • Paper: 48x A4 sheets
  • Greyboard: 4x A5 sheets
  • Decorative paper: 4 sheets cut to size (patterns may vary)
