Gauffering is sort of like "carving" the fore-edge of the book with a
design. It may even be gilded as well but is "indented" but I don't know
how you DO it. I have many books on bookbinding so I'm sure it's in there
somewhere if no one else can answer it for you.
BTW, you CAN marble the edges of a book and edge-paint and even edge-paint
and THEN gild, I've seen examples of all of the above.
