    CARDBOARD BOOK COVER

    The cardboard book cover is the direct descendant of the binding techniques of the books used by the monks of the early Middle Ages. Even in our time it has maintained the most renowned product qualities of bookbinding, and this thanks to the successful combination of robustness of the object and aesthetic appeal. This is a method by which the union between the block-book and the cover is done using the inner faces of the cover, to which the volume endings are pasted. The end caps are of major importance for the strength of the finished product and can be made up of the first and last page of the book block (provided that the weight of the internal pages paper allows it) or a quartet of higher grammar, specially prepared and applied to the outside of the book block itself. The cardboard cover is the one that is considered the most valuable cover, the one that more than any other is considered the very expression of the book. It consists of rigid cardboard (1,5, 2 or 3 mm) covered with different materials, according to the need, such as paper, canvas, imitation leather or other. In the event that it is completely covered with a single material it will be called full coverage or full canvas cover, if instead two different materials are used, one for the back and one for the quadrants will then be called half ligature or half canvas. The back can be square or round.
