Hard strip spine: For these hard covers, a hard strip inlay is made from material that is the same thickness as the front and back cover boards, with the inlay slightly narrower than the text bulk.  This creates a book with “shoulders”.

*Head: The top, specifically the edge, of the book.

Hardbinding Spotlight #3

Corners – Library: Each corner of the cover material is folded at a 45-degree angle that permanently affixes to the cover boards. All glued-off overhang shall be turned into the case. Meets library binding standard: ANSI/NISO/LIB Z39.78

Corners – Traditional: Overhang shall be cut away  at a 45-degree angle at each corner. All head and tale overhang shall be turned into the case, then the tip of the corner tucked in before the fore and back edges are permanently adhered. Meets library binding standard: ANSI/NISO/LIB Z39.78

Deluxe Hard CoverCover: The outer part of any book. Covers are generally labeled as hard or soft. Type of cover effects types of bindings possible.

End Sheet(s) (*Leaf/*end papers): The element of a hardbound book that consists of the “inside” of the covers and the first and last sheet of paper in the book.  The end sheets are adhered to the inside of the binding boards and attach to the book via a double hinge that includes a sheet of paper.

*Head: The top, specifically the edge, of the book.

Headband: A strip of embroidered cloth at the end of the spine, exending beyond the book block. Optional ALA element included in Gregath deluxe binding.

Hinge In: A paper or cloth strip may be adhered along the binding edge of the a page, or pages, to be added after the book has been bound, so that the strip extends beyond the binding edge. This can then be “hinged” into a “finished” book by pasting up the part of the paper or cloth strip that extends beyond the addition, and adhering the strip to the binding edge of a sheet (or leaf) in the text block.  This may also be used to change a given published page: cut the page to be replaced out of the existing book leaving as wide a bound paper strip as the binding margin will allow; follow instructions as above or – trim the replacement page to fit the published book (with extra paper to overlap bound strip); using an archival quality media, attach replacement page to bound strip.

* denotes a term that Gregath Publishing doesn’t normally use.
