How do I put my endpapers together? An endpaper at front and back of a hardcover book is basically a four-page item, 1, 2, 3 and 4. The front endpaper, one who’s down to the board and you do not see it, 2 and 3 will print and four will be blank, facing the first page of your text. On the back endpaper, the reverse is true. Page one, which is blank faces the last page of the text, 2 and 3 are printed and page four, you do not see is glued down to the case.
