Words : BAOBEIZHUANG 包背装 ...

... baobeizhuang (or wrapped back binding) is the last step from brutterfly binding towards the traditional Chinese book. Baobeizhuang developed from hudiezhuang. Pages were folded in half with the text facing outwards. They were then tied together to form a spine at the inner margin. The blank white disappeared into the inside of the fold, while on the outside text ran right to the edge.
