Paper: Cover boards are  covered with some colourful or cancy thicker paper, thus giving a pleasing look and as well as protecting the cardboard. Many children's books and other popular books are bound in this manner. Wooden boards were used before paper boards were available but now a variety of paper boards is available. They are straw board, mill board, grey board, split boards.
