I have a book listed on my wish list with several binding types and one of the paperback bindings has (P.S) after the title.  What does this mean?


Thank you!!

My interest is piqued. Googling paperback (P.S.) gives a good number of results, but I can't find any place that explains it.

Which book?

I'm pretty sure it's based on how the book was bound, using a Pressure Strip method.


There are pictures of the different bindings. PS is the second one down.

There is also a publishing house imprint by that name.  Some times the Publisher does show up in the title.

The book that I have wished listed is Dennis Lehane's The Given Day.   I wish listed several bindings and only one paperback binding had the P.S.

Thank  you for the information!
