Glossary of Printing Terms:
Uncut

Refers to the untrimmed pages of a book – the edges appear rough and uneven.

In early bookbinding, the unbound pages of a book were left uncut until the binder trimmed them flush and smooth as part of the binding process.

Today the terms uncut and unopened are often used synonymously. See also deckle edges.
