double cord sewing

A book sewn on double raised cords, i.e., two cords set adjacent and almost touching, the sewing thread leaving and re-entering the section through one hole. Double cord sewing is substantially stronger than sewing on single cords and the sections are better supported against the pull of the thread where required most. i.e., at the point where the thread leaves and re-enters the section. See also: FLEXIBLE SEWING .
