Thank you, Peter.

Can it be said that your definition varies from that

| The difference between the Asian and French fold is as follows.
|
| Asian: Single folio (2 printed pages on same side) folded so that fold
is
| on foredge
| French fold: Single sheet (4 printed pages on same side) folded first
along
| the top edge, then in the center so that the "section" can be sewn
through
| the fold. The top edges remain folded and are not trimmed.
