Hardback or Case Binding
This is traditionally used for higher quality books where quality or durability is of the utmost importance. Very popular with client producing Family History Books
A hardcover aka hardback is a book bound with thick protective cover, with usually a paper or leather dust jacket over the main cover. The aim of hardcover is protection and durability. These books are mainly for long-term use and collectors’ editions. Hardcover books last far longer than the corresponding paperbacks. They do not get damaged easily thus making them perfect for reference guides, great literary works, etc.
In addition, there is a difference in the type of paper used to print hardcover books. The paper used is long-lasting acid-free type. Acid-free paper has a pH value of 7 (neutral) which makes it highly durable. The papers are stitched or glued to the spine.
Hardbacks are prepared for commercial works, best sellers, reference books, etc., which should be long lasting.
