Long Stitch Binding:

In the fourteenth century, long stitch binding was used for ledgers, vouchers, and accounting books. It became the standard of authentic, archival format for business records.

The fascinating feature of the long stitch account book is its ability to open effortlessly to display attractive interior papers that lie perfectly flat without flexing the spine. Each signature was sewn directly to the cover. No adhesive is used in this binding!
