spine lining paper

A relatively heavy paper, usually kraft, sometimes coated, and with either a creped or flat finish. The paper, which is applied with the machine direction running from head to tail of the text block, should be of a thickness appropriate to the size and weight of the book. It is generally applied over the initial cloth lining of large and/or heavy hand- and library-bound books. Spine lining paper is seldom used in edition binding.
