A form of binding of softcover books is a form of binding commonly used in modern books after type printing.
The inner pages of the softcover book are printed on both sides. After the large paper is folded, stamp each printed sheet at the spine of the book. Horseback locks the thread. After the cover is installed, the book can be cut on all three sides except for the book. This method is called “lock stitch”. Because the lock thread is cumbersome and costly, but it is firm, suitable for thicker or key books, such as dictionaries.
Most of them use the method of first trimming the spine and then gluing without locking the thread. This method is called “wireless glue nail”. It is economical and fast, but not very strong, suitable for thin or ordinary books.
