Also, Doublebacked or tête-bêche binding: Said of paperbacks, magazines, or fanzines, bound together heel-and-toe, sharing a common spine, so that each can be read from its cover inwards.
Stefnists generally call this Ace Double style, from Ace Books' use of this style for their paperbacks: "Ace Double Novels" (later "Ace Double"). Norman Spinrad once suggested that Ace Books might someday republish and (as was the practice) retitle the Bible, as Wargod of Israel and The Thing With Three Souls.
Sometimes (incorrectly) called dos-à-dos, which refers to two books bound together with a shared central board but both upright, facing in opposite directions.
