The method of arranging the pages of the book so that they are in the correct sequence when the sheet is printed and folded. More generaly it refers to the layout of a project on a press sheet and the goal is usualy efficient use of as much of the press sheet as possible.

Ink limit or total ink limit is a term expressed as a percentage that is used to describe the maximum amount of ink that is used in a particular process.  In offset printing that limit might be 320%, and is really a limit due to the paper only being able to absorb so much ink.  In a digital printing process that limit might be 260% because the fuser can only melt that thickness of toner effectivly.  Each individual ink has a maximum of 100%.  So our recomended rich black is C 40% + M 30% + Y 30% + K 100% for a total ink coverage of 200%.  Every printable CMYK color can be achieved  using a build under the total ink limits commonly in practice, however design tools such as InDesign and Illustrator do not enforce these limits.

Additional matter placed within a book or pamphlet without being permanently fixed. For example a diagram in a pocket at the end of a book or a donation envelpe in a booklet.
