Springback binding

This structure patented in the late eighteenth century and further developed in the nineteenth century was used for ledger binding. The Springback is a robust structure, which allows the textblock to lie flat when opened without stressing the spine. The structure consists of a hard hollow spine attached to the textblock. The hard spine attachment forces the textblock to raise level when opened. This binding structure is extremely useful for guest books and lectern bibles. It is also useful for writers who prefer a flat surface for writing allowing full use of the page.
