perfect bound vs. saddle stitch
Authored by: DavidRavenMoon on Feb 22, '05 12:48:11PM

A book with 2 page spreads, like 8 & 1, backed with 2 & 7, etc., is not perfect bound. It's a saddle stitch booklet, because it will be folded and stapled (stitched).

Perfect bound books are single two sided pages, page 1 on one side, with page 2 on the other, and so on. Perfect bound books are glued on their spine. A paperback book is a good example of perfect binding.

Anything with staples in the middle, is a saddle stitch.
