Getting edgy

The new Jame’s Ellroy book, Blood's A Rover, is described as having a deckle edge. In other words, the pages aren’t neatly trimmed, but a little rough. To me, that sends a subliminal message that the book is of higher quality. I really love the look of deckle edges.

That got me curious to learn more about the different kinds of edges. You can see examples here.
