Mull is a sort of stiff muslin fabric. It is open weave so adhesive can
be brushed through. It is used over the spine to reinforce and hold
everything in place before attaching the cover boards, which the mull
is also glued to.  The book cloth is then applied over the mull and
over at least part of the cover boards.
