Edge decoration

From Multilingual Bookbinding Dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The edges of every book must be in keeping with the binding. A half roan book should not have an expensive edge, neither a whole bound morocco book a sprinkled edge. Still, no rule has been laid down in this particular, and taste should regulate this as it must in other branches. The taste of the public is so changeable that it is impossible to lay down any rule, and I leave my reader to his own discretion.

—Zaehnsdorf, Joseph W. The Art of Bookbinding: A Practical Treatise. London: G. Bell & Sons, 1890. Internet resource.

A general term used with reference to the application of gold leaf, color, ink, or other medium, or the tooling, painting, or other form of decoration, of one or more edges of a book.

—Etherington

Decoration applied to the cut edges of a bookblock. Many different decorative techniques were used for this purpose, and the decoration could be done both before and after endbands were sewn, boards attached and covers added.
