G is for gutter

The gutter is the space created by the binding of a book or magazine. It is the inside margins of the left and right pages, or blank space between two facing pages.

Depending on the type of binding, the gutter measurement may need to be increased as the viewing area can be reduced by the curvature of the pages.
