The hinge (or joint) refers to the line along the front or back cover of a book which bends along a groove and ridge as the cover is opened and closed. Also refers to a strip of paper or muslin fabric, affixed between the two halves of an endpaper where the pages of a book join the cover, to reinforce the point at which the cover flexes as it opens and closes.
