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.
