 This is what I found out:
QuoteA tankōbon is the Japanese term for a compilation volume of a series (such as a manga or a novel series), as opposed to a magazine or a complete works series that contain multiple series.

Japanese manga is typically published in weekly/monthly compilations (such as Afternoon or Shonen Jump). These compilations often have hundreds of pages and dozens of individual story lines by different authors. Since these weekly/monthly editions are printed on very cheap newsprint, they are considered disposable. Tankobon collect multiple chapters from a single author and reprint them in a roughly paperback-sized volume on higher quality paper.

In English, tankoubon are regularly referred to as graphic novels, especially in reference to manga.
