The π’πžπœπ«πžπ­ 𝐁𝐞π₯𝐠𝐒𝐚𝐧 𝐁𝐒𝐧𝐝𝐒𝐧𝐠 is a method of bookbinding that uses primary and secondary sewing, resulting in a distinct thread pattern on the cover and spine of the finished book. The primary sewing is used to create the text block. The secondary sewing is used to bind the text block to the cover boards.Β This binding was invented in the mid-1980s by Anne Goy, a Belgian bookbinder. She was looking for a Western version of the traditional Japanese stab binding techniques. She wanted a book that would open flat but with the appearance of stab sewing.

The book cover is made using three separate pieces: front cover, back cover, and spine piece. The spine piece is held in place only by threads passing over and under it. It creates a distinct thread pattern on the cover and it is a very sturdy binding that allows the book to open completely flat.

The journal has 56 pages of top quality acid-free eco paper of 240 gsm (130 lbs), π‚π¨π«π’πšπ§ππ¨π₯𝐒 𝐏𝐚𝐩𝐞𝐫,Β a French paper that resembles handmade papers of an older time.
