page

   One side of a leaf, or sheet of paper in a publication, letter, book, or manuscript, often with reference to its contents. "Page" can also refer to a Web page. It is also a common field of reference in graphic design. In a book, the right-hand page is called the recto, the left-hand the verso. These two pages are often arrayed on a signature (a folded sheet of paper) so that it has four pages altogether.
