Understanding the Anatomy of a Book

This video is designed to help people understand some of the jargon used by booksellers when describing the physical aspects of a book. I’m sure you can figure out what the spine is but do you know your hinge from your joint? What about the endpapers? I recommend the AbeBooks glossary for learning more about used and rare book terms.

  1. Thank you for your video. It was very informative but didn’t answer my question. Not your fault because you were describing the physical anatomy of a book and I’m interested more in the content.

    It was well done.
