Many people do not know the difference between hardcover and paperback books; for hardcover book printing, the production process requires higher, so the paper also needs high-grade paper.

Differences.
1. different printing process
hardcover books relative to paperback book process requirements are relatively high, generally, with hard paper, fabric, leather, plastic and other covers; some books also wrapped cloth on the back, that is, the process of hardcover book printing is very complex and demanding.
The paperback method is more straightforward and less expensive and is suitable for books with fewer pages and larger quantities.
The primary process of simple binding are folding, matching pages, stapling, wrapping the cover and cutting neat book edges; the body of such books are generally made of paper.

2. Different paper requirements
Whether hardcover book printing or paperback book printing, the production of a book will have two parts of printing and binding composition; for hardcover and paperback books, the printing process is the same; there is little difference. The hardcover book printing requirements are higher quality, so the paper used is generally high-grade, is better paper, while the paperback book with the usual ordinary paper can be.

3. Binding method is different
Paperback is the book we usually use, generally using the binding method of glue binding, glue binding to use special glue binding machine, particular binding with hot melt adhesive, the book's inner pages, and then stick together with the cover can be. The available body is used copperplate paper or something; the cover paper is thicker than the inner pages, the whole book is bendable and can be held in hand.
And hardcover books are generally used to lock the line binding method; that is, the line will be closed together and then glued, so more vital, not easy to fall off the page. Hardcover book covers are generally hard shell, the printed thin paper glued to the hard surface to form the book cover, and then the inner pages glued to the book shell. Hardcover books are not bendable and look noble, usually mainly because the hardcover seems very heavy and delicate.
