2 Claims.
This invention relates to a book, preferably in the form of a folder which may be converted into an exhibiting device.
The object of the invention is to provide students, salesmen and others, interested in making notes or exhibiting printed or written matter, illustrations, pictures and the like, with a book, and an associated device, the device being foldable to substantially flat condition, and also capable of being arranged or set up in easel-like form, permitting the: individual pages to be turned one at a time to exhibit the matter carried thereon.
In the drawings, Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the book or device in flat, folded condition, partly cut away; Fig. 2 shows the device of Fig. 1 set up as an easel; Fig. 3 is a. perspective view of a support which carries the book in bound form; Fig. 4 is a view of the device of Fig. 1 open and lying in fiat condition; Fig. 5 is an end view of the device of Fig. 2; and Fig. 6 is a view of the multiplicity of pages and the binding element uniting them.
The folder I is made up of three panels, to wit, a book-carrying member 2, the support 3, and a flap 4. The members 2, 3 and 4 are preferably made of a suitable composite material, covered with imitation leather or other decorative covering material l, This decorative material l is preferably used in sheet form so that it extends as a continuous sheet from edge to edge of the folder i on both the inner and outer faces, thereby binding the several members 2, 3 and 4 together and at the meeting edges of said members forming hinges, which permits movement of the mem-- bers relative to each other. The members 2 and 3 have interposed between them two narrow strips 5 and G which are also joined as part of the folder by the covering material 1, the covering material I forming hinges 8 and 9 between the members 2 and 3, which permits free movement of the carrying member 2 and the support 3 with respect to each other and also permits free move ment of the strips 5 and 6. The book it! comprises a multiplicity of sheets, either blank sheets usable for memoranda or recording purposes or sheets having printed thereon illustrations, descriptive or reading matter such as is usually found in printed books, catalogs and the like. The pages are bound together by a suitable binding member I l. The type of binding member may vary and may comprise the ordinary metal rings such as are found in looseleaf binders, spiral binders such as are used in memorandum books, or the type of binder shown in United States Patent No. 2,078,988, which is the type shown in the accompanying drawings.
The book as illustrated is carried upon a separate backing l2, the backing being inserted in a pocket It formed on the inside of the member 2 and comprises a sheet of flexible composite board 14 having a facing bound to the carrying member 2 by the turned in edges of the covering l. The book is preferably made separable from the folder in order that a new book may be inserted in the folder as required. If the book is to be made a permanent part of the folder, the sheets may be bound directly to the board It by use of the selected type of binder which may pass through suitable holes in the board It and corresponding holes in the binding edge of the book, as is well understood.
The two strips 5 and 5, bound together as described, form a double acting hinge, lying flat when the folder is open, as shown in Fig. l. When the folder is closed, as shown in Fig. 1, the member 5 lies in the plane of the carrying member 2 and the member 5 forms the back lb of the book. The width of the member 6 is substantially equal to the diameter of the binding member II, whereby a housing is formed, for the binder, with the member when the book is closed. When it is desirous of setting up the folder as an easel, the support It is, thrown backwardly at an angle to the carrying member 2 and the double acting hinge is adjusted so that the member 5 is substantially at right angles to the plane of the carrying member 2 and the member 6 extends from the lower edge of the member 5 to the carrying member 2 and engaging the same, the associated support 3 extending downwardly, all as shown in Fig. 5. The device in this form can be used as an easel; the pages may be examined successively and turned backwardly on the binding member as they are disposed of. li'he device is exceedingly firm, standing upon the carrying member 2 and the support 3. The width of the support 3 determines the angle at which the pages are exposed and it is preferred that the Width of the support 3 be shorter than the width of the carrying member 2 in order to obtain a suitable reading angle for the book.
Inasmuch as the support 3, when the folder is closed, is not wide enough to cover the entire book, the flap 4 is provided, hinged at it to the member 2, which hinge is formed by the overlapping covering material i. The width of the flap 4 is such as to underlie the support 3 when the book is closed and these two members may be fastened together by the cooperating snap fastener members 11. The free end of the flap is provided with a strip l8 hinged at It by the double thickness of the covering 1. The strip I8 is provided with snap fastener members 20. When the easel is set up, the flap 4 is thrown backwards with respect to the member 2, forming a base as shown in Fig. 5 for supporting the easel, and the lowermost edge 2| is aligned with the hinge [9, the strip l8 being thrown upwardly against the support 3 and its snap members I! being associated with the snap members 20.
I claim:
1. A combination book and exhibiting device having three aligned sections, the middle section supporting a book consisting of a multiplicity of individual sheets secured together by a binding member comprising a multiplicity of units passing through apertures in the sheets and end sections foldable over said book to form with the middle section a covering for said book, one of the end sections being attached to the middle section by a two part hinge comprising three flexible joints adapted to flex both forwardly and backwardly, one of said joints being positioned inside of the outer edge of the binder, the outer joint being positioned in advance of said'first mentioned joint, the intermediate joint being positioned in the neighborhood of the plane in which the outer edge of the binder is located, said two part hinge being adapted when the device is closed to border the binder at the bottom and the outer edge thereof, the area between the inside joint and the intermediate joint lying beneath the binder and the area between the intermediate joint and the outside joint lying against and engaging the outer edge of the binder, whereby the back of the book when the book is closed is supported and stiffened by the binder, said device being adapted to be set up as an easel and when set up as an easel the end section carried by the two part hinge standing at an inclination with respect to the middle section, the two part hinge having the portion thereof between the inside joint and the intermediate joint freely extending outwardly and downwardly and the portion thereof between the intermediate joint and the outside joint extending forwardly toward the middle section and the outside joint engaging the rear surface of the middle section and supportingthe same, the other end section being hinged to the middle section and in easel position extending rearwardly and lying beneath the upstanding end section.
2. A combination book and exhibiting device as defined in claim 1, which is provided with a flap, the flap being adapted to overlie the book when the book is closed and to be adjusted rearwardly beneath the upstanding end section when] the device is set up as an easel.
