Longstitch Binding Tutorials

Longstitch bindings come in many forms and answer to many names; there are probably a million ways to make books using longstitch sewings. That might not even be an exaggeration. I've compiled a list of resources for anyone who might be interested in learning more about longstitch bindings where the textblock is sewn directly through the cover material. Leave a comment if you have other favorite longstitch resources either online or in print.
