From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Folio may refer to:

  • Foolscap folio, a paper size, usually 8½ × 13½ inches (216 × 343 mm) per sheet,
  • Folio (printing), a book size, for books printed at that size
  • Mainly for manuscripts, a leaf (ie two pages). Manuscript pages are often traditionally physically marked with numbers, and referred to, by folio number, with "recto" for the first side and "verso" for the second - so "f.3v" would be "page 6" in a conventional count.
  • A particular edition of a book printed on folio pages, such as the First Folio of William Shakespeare's plays
  • Folio (typeface), a sans-serif typeface
  • Folio Society, publishers of fine illustrated books
  • Folio Weekly, a newspaper published in Florida and Georgia
  • Folio Corporation, a software company and technology product
  • "Folio", an imprint of French publisher Éditions Gallimard, specializing in mass market paperback books
