What are Endsheets?

Endsheets are the pages at the beginning and end of hardcover books that are used to glue the inside pages, known as the book block, to the hardcover.

All of our printers use endsheets, but not all use an additional flyleaf (extra blank page) at the beginning and end of the book. Having a flyleaf vs. no flyleaf varies in appearance only, and both methods are equally secure in effectively binding the book block to the hardcover board.

Please see below for diagrams of the different possible binding methods, as well as examples of the printed books.
