Book spine (book back, Backbone; spine) refers to the front and back cover of the booklet connected part, equivalent to the thickness of the book core.

It is not easy for readers to find the books they need among the many varied spines, especially in libraries and even in homes, where texts are inserted in the shelves. Based on these circumstances, it can be judged that the importance of spine design will become more and more apparent and a long-term reality.

It has been said that the cover is the first face of a book, while the spine is the second face of the book. From a functional point of view of an artistic visual point of view, it should be emphasized that the range is as important as the cover. The key to carrying out spine design is a matter of understanding and thinking. By understanding the following key issues and solving them one by one, you can achieve spine design requirements.
