Explanation:
Usually, you are not supposed to exceed 10 words in KudoZ; it is more for terms than phrases, but I took a stab anyway.

I think cartonata refers to the copertina and is the same thing as the cartone.

Cover: 2 mm thick paperboard covered with 4-color-process printed paper with clear plastic and details with reserve in opaque plastic with glitter.

In Garzanti, you will find the last definition of "riserva" as:
5 (tecn.) reserve; (sostanza applicata alle parti da riservare) resist: un medaglione d'oro smaltato con un fiore inciso in -, a gold enamelled medallion with a flower engraved in reserve; un tessuto tinto a strisce con le riserve ricamate, a stripe dyed fabric with embroidered reserves.
