Commuter Rail Adventures
To my fellow commuters, these volumes are designed to pass the time and enjoy the rides.
One can only hope for some fun or an adventurous snooze on the hungry rides home.

Link Stitch Binding
The link stitch is similar to the Coptic in appearance however the process is completely different. There are five sewing stations in this structure and typically a soft cover is used. It opens flat just like a Coptic binding but you can find this stitch hidden beneath cloth or in other adhesive-inclusive structures.
Coptic Stitch Bindings
Below are some examples of the Coptic Stitch. This is a non-adhesive binding, meaning that the structure is only held together by the linen thread I used. Don't worry it's strong. Way back when, folks used to traditionally use wooden boards as covers. Holes are created (by either punching or drilling depending on the cover material) in the sides and through the edges of the boards where the thread will enter and eventually be hammered into place.
