Abstract

Referring to the figure, a covered book 10 includes a rec~ tangular stack of aligned sheets ll~l3 providing an edge surface l4~ Adjacent the first sheet 11 of the stack there is located a rectangular protective sheet 15, sheet 15 being fixed to the sheet 11 adjacent edge 14, with, for example, a longitudinal strip of pressure sensitive adhe~ sive. The stack of sheets ll-l3 and the protective sheet 15 are mutually coupled by an adhesive binding strip 19. Protective sheet 15 extends snugly around the unbound edge 23 of the stack of sheets, around adhesive strip 19, and is fixed to itself, near its end 24, by a longitudinal strip of adhesive. The adhesive 25 may be of the pressure sensitive type and, preferably, should have a holding strength sufficient to prevent separation unless detectable tearing of sheet 15 occurs. Sheet 15 is scored along a region 18 adjacent an edge of the binding strip to facilitate removal of a substantial part of the sheet when it is no longer required.

tangular stack of aligned sheets ll~l3 providing an edge
surface l4~ Adjacent the first sheet 11 of the stack there
is located a rectangular protective sheet 15, sheet 15
being fixed to the sheet 11 adjacent edge 14, with, for
example, a longitudinal strip of pressure sensitive adhe~
sive. The stack of sheets ll-l3 and the protective sheet
15 are mutually coupled by an adhesive binding strip 19.
Protective sheet 15 extends snugly around the unbound
edge 23 of the stack of sheets, around adhesive strip 19,
and is fixed to itself, near its end 24, by a longitudinal
strip of adhesive. The adhesive 25 may be of the pressure
sensitive type and, preferably, should have a holding
strength sufficient to prevent separation unless detectable
