Writer’s Lingo
///////////////////////////////

Front matter: All the pages in the front of the book, leading up to the text proper – title page/verso, dedication, table of contents, frontice piece, preface, etc.

Gripper Margin (*Grip): Margin space that is needed to get the page through the press.  Strictly speaking the *Grip is space that cannot be printed upon, and is always larger on one of the 4 edges of the paper.

Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.
