End papers

In a hardback book, the blank pages lying between the start and end of the book pages proper. Sometimes these are coloured and/or decorative. The function of the end papers relates to bookbinding where the sheets are glued in to hide the join between the hardback case and the book block within it and to give greater strength to the binding.

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 bookbinding.
