Book #294

Brochure Binding

This is a soft cover book, which might have a number of names. In "Books, Boxes and Portfolios," Zeier calls it a brochure binding. It could also be called a paperback binding or something similar. For my example, the textblock consists of signatures sewn with a simple abbreviated stitching; however, the textblock could be prepared a number of ways. The key element is that the paper cover is glued directly to a flat spine.
