Stiff Soft Cover

The STIFF SOFT COVER can be regarded as a book without a spine.

The cover boards of the stiff paperback are made separately from the book block. A coloured backlining tape (textile tape) serves as the spine. Open thread stitching is used by preference for this as well.

The covers for a stiff soft cover can be custom covered. They can also be clad in a coloured overlay or be cropped smooth as open grey paperboard. In that case the trim edge remains visible.

The stiff soft cover will also be given end papers that connect the book block to the cover boards, since they are glued together.
