No oversewing shall extend more than 3/16 inch in from the backedge of the volume, and no nearer to the head and tail than 1/2 inch). 

i) With the exception of the cover, all other parts, construction, processes and materials. shall be in conformity with the minimum specifications, 

ii) Three types of cover shall be permissible: 

Type I Class 'A' Cover. Cover similar in appearance to the  publishers' original cover but made of heavy weight library buckram (starch filled of pyroxlin-filled) or pyroxlin coated fabric as required by the minimum specification, and with the publisher's original design imprinted thereon.  

Type II Publihser's light-weight buckram cover. Cover similar to that of Type I, but made of a light-weight  buckram, with the publisher's original design imprinted thereon.
