3. Sewing with out tapes (two sections)
Put one signature inside the other and pierce with three or five holes depending on the size of the page. Separate and put the two signatures back to back. Now sew with a pamphlet stitch:
start at the centre hole, leaving a few inches of thread (waxed) go in and out to the end, come back up and go to the other end, then back to the middle. Bring the needle under the loop of the centre stitch and pull horizontally to make everything snug, then tie off.
Close the sections and flatten under weights or in a small press for a while.
