Re: [BKARTS] searching high and low



Although not specifically referring to books, I would say an ogee curve refers to the shape of an open page

Not knowing nearly as much as others on this listserv about the
technicalities of books, I would definitely look to choose a more sensual
term among all the possibilities. It may not be the mark of a great binding
job, but that curve of the pages is so pleasant to experience that it SHOULD
have a name!

I don't know if there is an official term, but if I were in charge of
coming up with one, I'd call it an "arch".

I'm looking for a term applicable to an open book that refers to the
rising curve of the pages that finally and (in many bindings)
dramatically dips down to the binding edge.
