Re: Glossary or no glossary



Remember that the traditional Chinese book has a folded sheet, with the fold
at the fore-edge.  And European-tradition books have that fold at the spine.
That difference probably affects the terminology of the book, since the view
of the text and its support is different.

This is interesting - are there other terms used in different parts of the
world to describe the parts of a traditional book?
