Book folding

Book folding is the stage of the book production process in which the pages of the book are folded after printing and before binding.


# A bifolio is a single sheet folded in half to make two leaves. Each half of the bifolio is a folio, though the terms are often used interchangeably.
# A section, sometimes called a gathering, is a group of bifolios nested together as a single unit. In a completed book, each section is sewn through its fold.
