Place where (book) binding takes place. Larger printing works often have their own bindery handling simpler processes like the perfect binding of paperbacks. Even when such binding departments are physically segregated from the rest of the printing works, the stink of the binding glue seeps past every barrier and lingers in the throat of all employees. The binding of hardbacks is more complex and is often undertaken independently by specialist binderies..

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 printing and binding.
