Agreement Intentionally Left Blank

Book publishers have also used stylized designs (dingbats) under the last paragraph of a chapter to indicate that there is no other content to wait before the next chapter, so the possibility of empty pages is possible without any misunderstanding on the part of readers. Deliberately empty pages placed at the end of books are often used to compensate for the folios that make up the book (see binding). Often, these pages are completely empty without this instruction or are used as „notes“ pages that serve a practical purpose. In telephone number directories, these pages are often used to list important numbers and addresses. Other books available by the same publishing house can be listed on these pages. Empty pages are ubiquitous in technical and usage manuals, directories and other large volumes of mass-produced text. The content of manuals developed by the supplier of a particular product is often developed from general instructions tailored to a large number of products, including additional instructions or chapters for the product or model. This automation of manual production leads to deliberately empty pages to meet mass pressure requirements. In the case of standardized tests where certain parts of the test are glued over time, empty pages are often inserted to prevent the taker from reading the test questions by reading the thin layers of paper.

Confirmation „This page is deliberately left empty“ is included to prevent the student from worrying that the exam may have been misprinted. But why was the site left empty? The reasoning depends on the written medium. If a printer`s document processor was designed to skip completely empty pages, indications on deliberately empty pages may be needed to avoid mis-numbering pages. The title of the article is exactly what appeared in the pages of the documents, in cases where a page was literally left empty. This could be due to the formatting of the chapters or the improvement of the means of surveying.
