Scope note
In the context of bookbinding, the joining of leaves or gatherings together one by one by drawing thread or wire backwards and forwards through the back folds of each sheet to attach it to the cords. It is distinct from "stitching," which, in the context of bookbinding, is used for fastening together a number of leaves or gatherings by passing the thread or wire through all of them at once.
