Notes: 

A single sheet of interleaving is an interleaf. Interleaving1, 2 is often inserted during printing and binding between the front of printed, illustrative plates and adjacent pages to prevent transfer of inks. The sheets may be bound in, tipped to the plate, or loose. Interleaving made from high-quality paper, often with an alkaline reserve, may be placed in a scrapbook or photo album to prevent contamination between materials on facing pages.
