Binding Technique

A method of fastening the sheets of a folded book block with the cover.

The main techniques used for binding a passport book block:

  • side sewing;
  • thread sewn binding;
  • saddle stitching.

As for side sewing, sheets of a book block are folded and bound with a thread that is passed through the thickness of the book block on the gutter margin, i.e. at a certain distance from the spine. In the other two cases, the sheets are folded and bound with a thread or metal staples along the binding edge.
