comment Which word can I use to refer to pictures on the backside of the book covers?
Thanks for your response. It seems to be exact word I looked for. Though as I wanted to refer to endpapers which is behind front cover and back cover, and distinguish between them, I guess I have to use something like "front cover endpaper" and "back cover endpaper" in this case...

So I guess those are called just "irregular plurals" and there is no fancy/obscure term for them? :) I don't know why I'm expected one :)

comment “Best is enemy of the good” (Russian idiom/saying)
@Barrie England - thanks for your answer, it's interesting to know after asking for English equivalent of this expression that not only English has almost the same expression, but also that most likely both English and Russian picked this up from French... Variant with "perfect/perfection" for some reason reminded me a joke which roughly translated goes something like this: "In hell for perfectionists there is no brim and no fire, but only slightly asymmetrically standing dented cauldrons."

comment Usage/meaning of “brattery”
Russian to English dictionary, it was mentioned when I look for "children's" translation. As I newer saw/heard this one before it sparked my interest. And the same dictionary which gave me this word doesn't have an article/entry for "brattery"... So I see it is kind of stuff you can find in OED or something similar only :)
