perfect bound

relating to a book that has a perfect binding

COMMENT: Perfect binding requires glue which does not dry out completely. The first perfect bound books tended to crack when opened, because the glue was too dry. Modern perfect binding allows even very large books to be bound in paper bindings; even some dictionaries are now perfect bound. A stronger form of perfect binding is notched binding, where notches are cut into the back of the folded sections instead of trimming off, so allowing the glue to penetrate the folds.
