Medieval Long-Stitch Binding
involves sewing directly through the covering material. It is a centuries-old technique with examples dating from the second century, primarily in Germany. By the 14th century, schools and university books relied on this style for binding limp parchment. Traditionally, strong linen thread or a twisted piece of vellum (tacket) provided stability and strength. Interestingly, Italian printed books also favoured this binding until the 16th century, while early 20th Century almanacs still relied on this technique. Finally, the French developed their own style by passing the thread through the previous signature creating a lacey effect.
