French joints (binding components, <bindings and binding components>, ... Components (hierarchy name))

 

Note: In bookbinding, free-swinging joints produced by setting the boards a slight distance, about 1/8" to 1/4", away from the backing shoulder, creating a space into which the covering material is pressed, forming a gully or groove. It is one of the more obvious characteristics of library bindings. It allows relatively thick covering material, such as buckram, to be used while still allowing the covers to open easily. Distinct from "tight joints," in which the board lies with its back edge flush against the shoulder, making for a comparatively rigid joint with no gully.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een vrij bewegend scharnier dat wordt gebruikt bij het boekbinden, geproduceerd door voor- en achterplat een klein stuk (ongeveer 3 tot 6 mm) van de kneep te plaatsen. Zo ontstaat een ruimte waarin het omslagmateriaal wordt geperst, waarbij er een plooi of een groef ontstaat. Het is een van de meest karakteristieke eigenschappen van bibliotheekbindingen. Er kan op deze manier dik omslagmateriaal worden gebruikt, zoals buckram, terwijl het boek nog steeds eenvoudig kan worden geopend. Anders dan 'gesloten scharnieren', waarbij het plat met de rugsnede tegen de kneep ligt, waardoor een vrij stugge verbinding ontstaat.
