Tête-bêche describes one volume that binds the text blocks of two separate works, one text running head-to-tail and one text running tail-to-head. Such a book has two front covers, a common spine, and no back covers.


These images show a Czech language tête-bêche volume of two collections of short stories, first published together in 1929. The first image shows the opposed covers, the second shows the opposed, facing tables of contents, and the third shows the dust jacket that replicates the covers.
