Term Definition
Pecha

(tib.: pecha) Text or book written in Tibetan language. These books have a specific oblong shape and pages are usually stored between wooden plates and wrapped in cloth. Pages are unbound and printed on both sides. Pechas can be stored in the cubbyholes, small end to the fore, with a cloth label hanging from the visible end. Pechas were often printed on rice paper or other poor quality materials. The alternative was to copy each text by hand. Now pechas are usually printed by more modern means.
