Definitions for "Case Binding"
Keywords:  hardcover, glued, bound, book, binder
A type of binding used in making hard cover books using glue.
A type of hardcover book binding in the which the pages of each signature are sewn together, and the signatures are then sewn or glued to the binder's boards at the spine. The boards are usually covered with cloth, printed paper, or a type of simulated leather.
Opposite from the type of binding where the cover is built on the book, in a case-bound book, the cover is made separately from the rest of the book and later attached in one piece.
