Being native English, Caryl - it's quite normal, you don't get the word "introligator". Not so often used these days.

When I was a young boy, I can still remember my father taking books "tired" with reading to the introligator. This profession has more to do with mending bussiness then with regular publishing process. Those men could do mirracles.
In the context above, it means meeting special demands from the client, concerning the look of the book.

Notes to answerer
Asker: What was really puzzling me about it - and what I was at a bit of a loss to deal with - was the apparant tautology.

Asker: That's interesting - thank you :-)


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Marek Daroszewski (MrMarDar): technika tutaj odnosi sie do typografii i offsetu; stąd wystarczy samo bookbinding
9 hrs
  -> Zawsze mam dylemat, czy mamy tłumaczyć samo wyrażenie (powstaje wtedy swego rodzaju słownik), czy też uwzględniać kontekst, odchodząc często od kompletnego tłumaczenia wyizolowanego terminu.

agree  inmb: podobnie jak Marek 1. Technika typograficzna i offsetowa 2. standardowa i niestandardowa oprawa introligatorska
