What Sets Case Binding Apart in the Bookbinding World?
When you think of the quintessential book, you probably think of a big, hard back book. You may think about the books that you used to study in school. Maybe you think about the books that you used to lay out on your coffee table, filled with photos and maps. At the end of the day, what you’re probably thinking of is a book made with case binding. The classic look of a book made with case binding is timeless, but let’s see what really sets it apart in the book binding world.
Case binding is built to last.
When it comes to book creation, you want your text to be immortalized. Part of ensuring that is choosing a very strong style of binding. Case binding is also known as hard cover binding due to the hard, outer shell that the book is sewn into. The pages within the book are printed, folded, gathered, and smyth-sewn into a book block. This book block is then glued into the case. The case is created by folding and gluing a printed sheet around three pieces of board. When the book contains more than 60 pages, end pages are used as well.
How can you utilize case binding for your next custom book project?
Hard back binding is perfect for books that will need to endure a lot of wear and tear. Things like children’s books or textbooks usually get passed around, dropped, and handled regularly over the course of many years. Their durability is going to play a major role in their success. Hard back books are also well-suited to creating elegant collections with glossy photos.
