The Secret Belgian Binding, more formally known as the Criss-Cross Binding, is a non-adhesive book structure developed by Belgian bookbinder Anne Goy in the 80’s and is noted for its striking pattern of lacing the front and back covers to the spine. It is an excellent choice for sketchbooks and artist books since the pages lay flat. Additionally, much creativity can be shown through the choice of thread and covering material, resulting in bindings that are both visually interesting and incredibly versatile.
