An original combination of two types of binding: hard and soft. The cover consists here of a single paperboard, like in a typical softcover, however it is not bound at the spine but by end papers, like in a hardcover. This gives it exceptional flexibility and resilience. Inside, the best solution is to use a thread-sewn block.
Flexo binding is ideal for fiction and all other books which are intended for heavy use and which should be lightweight and comfortable in handling. Publishers choose it mostly for guidebooks, dictionaries and popular science publications.
