Shingling

A means of positioning type in books, magazines, newsletters, or other publications designed to be bound by means of saddle-stitching that compensates for creep, an increasing book thickness through the interior of the publication, by progressively narrowing the bind margin from the outside pages to the center pages, and increasing the bind margin from the center pages to the back pages. Shingling is performed so that text appears to be in the same position on all pages. See Saddle-Stitching and Creep (third definition).
