Hardcover Academic Book

Hardcover Academic Book Printing: (1) A4 size, portrait format. (2) Smythe sewn binding. (3) Imitation leather paper like Skivertex, Kivar 7 over grey board. (4) Text body with black printing on white regular uncoated wood free paper (70gsm - 120gsm). (5) Square and loose back, H & T bands. (6). Gold/silver foil stamping on case.

Hardcover books made by these steps --

  • Print and fasten the book block.  At the front and back of the book block are endsheets, the heavier paper which in a finished book runs from the inside of the cover to the front or back of the text.

  • Make the case, or cover.  This consists of three  pieces of binder board glued to a sheet of covering material.  The pieces of binder boards correspond to the front, spine, and back of the book. The covering is typically foil stamped to show the title, author, or design you want on the cover of the finished book.

  • Add headbands to the book block, round the spine of the book (if called for), and do other finishing steps expected for quality books.

  • Draw the case onto the book block.  This consists of gluing the endsheets to the inside of the covers.  It's either done very slowly by hand or quickly by machine.

The Covering for a hard cover book is the material to which the binder boards are glued.  There are thousands of kinds, weights, and colors of coverings.  The three basic popular types are printed, laminated covering, library cloth, or leatherette. The printed, laminated covering, or lithowrap, can carry whatever design you like.  Lithowrap coverings are generally done in full color, so no dust jacket is necessary to show off your design.  Library cloth includes woven fabric (expensive) or simulated woven fabric, in both cases impregnated with a resin that strengthens and stabilizes the material.  Leatherette has a finish that simulates various kinds of animal hide or simply shows attractive patterns.  We can also use composite or simulated leather.

The book title, author, other information, along with possible designs are applied to the covering by stamping.  Flat foil stamping is most common (and least costly), using gold, silver, or colored metallic foils.  Three-dimensional die stamping is also possible at a higher cost.
