Several factors influence book binding: how much the publisher wishes to spend on binding; the publisher's judgment on the type of binding likely to appeal to a book's readership; the state of binding technology; and, the contemporary climate of design. The Victorian influence on design dramatically shaped bookbinding in the 1800s, going so far tha...
