(1) Type/method of binding (perfect, burst, saddle-stitched, etc.). Part of the increased cost of a #hardback book is justified by its superior binding. (2) Process in which a book is bound. (3) #Casing of a book. (4) Hence also denotes the edition (#hardback or #paperback).

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on TOPIC/URL.
