Scope note
The apparatus used or the manner of joining two or more parts of an object or structure. In bookbinding, the term describes the flexing exterior junctions of the spine and covers of a book. Distinguished from "hinges (fasteners)", which use strips of fabric or paper placed between the two halves of an endpaper where the body of the book is fixed to its cover.
