Bookmatching occurs when the veining and movement of an individual slab is mirrored in another slab. Meaning when placed end to end, the veining and movement carries on from one slab to the other creating a continuing flow or pattern. The process of Bookmatching occurs during manufacturing when alternating sides of the slab are polished. It adds cost and time to the finishing process and not all natural stone is suitable for bookmatching.

Natural stones with strong movement and veining are best suited for book-matching.  Many varieties of marble, quartzite and travertine have the right characteristics befitting a booknatched installation.

When considering your overall interior design, it is important to carefully consider the type of bookmatching: veincut vs crosscut.  Typically, bookmatched slabs manufactured crosscut offer the most dramatic and varied patterns where bookmatched veincut slabs offer a more structured and striated patterning.
