What is "Wraparound" - Definition & Explanation

A garment, as a dress, made with a full-length opening and adjusted to the figure by wrapping around.
Some dust jackets carry the artwork on the front cover around to the spine, or even, at times, to the back of the jacket. Collectors refer to these as "wraparound dust jackets."
