Abstract

A binding apparatus wherein a stack of sheets to be bound is registered against a movable registration edge which is thereafter retracted, the stack being subsequently compressed by clamp means which act upon all but a small portion of the edge of the sheets to be bound to slightly "fan~ the stack edge. A cover having one side thereof disposed beneath the clamped stack is provided with adhesive along the spine thereof, folding of the cover against the unclamped ends of the stack causing the adhesive to permeate the fanned edges of the sheet, the top cover thereafter being deformed into contact with the top sheet in the stack to complete the binding operation.
