Parts of a book

Although there are a number of resources online describing the parts of a book, I haven’t always been satisfied with what I’ve found. I hope that these images will help fill that gap. Depicted are the cover/board, text block, fore-edge, head, tail, headcap, tailcap, headband, tailband, spine, hinge, joint, endsheet (also known as the endpaper or endleaf), pastedown, flyleaf, and dust jacket.



From above.
