the thickness of paper ■ verb ⃞ to bulk up to use bulky paper to make a book appear thicker The book is only 96 pages but we bulked it up so that we can price it at £ 9.99

COMMENT: In Europe, paper bulk is measured either in microns (the thickness of one leaf) or by giving a volume factor which gives the bulk in millimetres of 200 pages of 100gsm. In the USA, bulk is measured by the number of pages per inch of thickness (p.p.i.). Hardwood pulp produces paper which is bulkier than softwood. Bulky mechanicals are used particularly for paperbacks. Light bulky paper (such as antique featherweight) is used for children\'s books.
