About Paperblanks'® Handstitched Books
Handstitched books are rare and have become the domain of connoisseurs or those who can afford the luxury of traditional craftsmanship. Paperblanks® welcomes you into this exclusive club with our uniquely priced Handstitched series of books representing the quality and timelessness inherent in the oldest of crafts, the stitching of manuscripts.
Our journals, with their open spines that allow the books to lie flat, reveal the handsome Coptic stitching that will hold pages in place far longer than any modern methods. Coptic stitching was developed in Egypt in the fourth century by the Christian Copts and it remains today one of the most beautiful and durable forms of book binding. This is quality, laid bare. For those who love the old book arts and those who love to know how things work, these are the journals for you.
Paperblanks® sells 4 series made up entirely of handstitched Coptic-bound journals. To view these blank books go to our products page here.
