Japanese stab binding is often taught in introductory bookbinding classes because it is quick to learn and it is truly classic. Japanese bookbinding is an ancient tradition and although it comes in many forms, the stab bindings are the best known and easiest to learn.
I decided to compile a list of tutorials for quick reference. If you have a favorite Japanese bookbinding resource that isn't mentioned here, leave a comment and tell us about it.
