sum 6 OF 6 COMPOSITE COVER-SUPPORT FOR CASSETTES AND BOOKS This invention concerns a composite cover-support for cassettes and printed matter, generally in the form of a book. By cassettes is meant any relatively rigid package and/or cartridge containing a sound and/or visual recording on tape or film. By printed matter is meant sheaves which may be printed or receive visible information such as by printing, bound or unbound, generally but not exclusively in the form of a book.

In the preferred embodiment of said composite cover-support, thereexists a relation between the subject of the cassette recording and the text or drawings on said printed matter.

The aims of the invention are multiple: to ,favorize the development of general culture by associating reading with audio and/or visual media; to promote a new way of selling books and cassettes; to introduce into commerce a safety cover-support, notably for cassettes; and to create a mixed form of library of a new kind.

To achieve these aims, the composite coversupport according to the invention includes cover members, similar to a book cover, and integral with these covers, at least one supporting means for at least one cassette and at least one supporting means for at least one sheaf or book, these elements being disposed in such a mutual relationship that, when said cover support is folded up upon itself, the cassette and sheaf or book connected thereto are juxtaposed, the whole presenting a compact, resistant, comfortable form of great protection for the cassette and sheaf or book.

The supporting means, respectively for the cassette and for the sheaf or book, are essentially variable and it is necessary only that they permit accessibility to said cassette and optionally to said sheaf or book so that these can be conveniently and rapidly withdrawn from and replaced in the common support when the cover members are in the open, unfolded position.

As to the common support and the relative position thereon of said supporting means, respectively for the cassette and for the sheaf or book, they shall be'such as-to obtain the free space(s) necessary'to permit the juxtaposition, respectively, of the cassette and of the sheaf or book, in the closed position of the coversupport.

The relative position between the cassette and the sheaf or the book is essentially variable.

Complementary closing means can be provided for the cassette supporting means and/or for the sheaf or book supporting means and/or for the common sup- Ol't.

P By reason of the juxtaposition of the cassette and of the sheaf or book, an important advantage is obtained in that the cassette, immobilized onto the support by its supporting means such as a sheath or pocket, is automatically protected against extraction on account of the abutment effect of the sheaf or book. In certain embodiments this protective measure may also be applied to the sheaf or book, respectively to the cassette and to the sheaf or book simultaneously.

In one particular embodiment, the cover-support comprises, on one hand, at least one receptacle or supporting means for at least one cassette and, on the other hand, a book directly and permanently affixed to said cover-support, the arrangement being such that access to the cassette with a view to extracting the latter is permitted only when the cover-support is sufficiently open so that the aforesaid abutment effect of the sheave or book ceases to exist.

In function of the kind of cassette and sheaf or book to be associated with said cover-support, the latter can be executed in essentially variable materials and at essentially variable prices.

By way of examples, some embodiments of the invention are hereinafter described, reference being made to the appended drawings wherein:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a composite coversupport according to the invention;

FIG. 23 shows a section along line XXIII-XXIII of FIG. 22;

FIG. 24 represents a partial perspective view of the composite cover-support according to FIGS. 22 and 23;

FIG. 25 shows, in a profile view and in open position, a composite cover-support with loose-leaf pages.

In all these embodiments, the composite coversupport according to the invention includes the combination of a general folding cover 1 comprising a pair of cover members 1alb, at least one supporting or securing means 2 for at least one cassette and a supporting or securing means 3 for a sheaf of printed material, generally a book.

In all the embodiments of the invention, said supporting means 2-3 are proportioned so as to leave, inside the cover 1, zones which are unoccupied in the open position of the cover-support but substantially entirely occupied in the closed or folded position of said coversupport.

In the example of FIGS. 1 and 2, a supporting means 2 is represented for a cassette 4 and a supporting means 3 for a book 5. In this embodiment, said supporting means 2 is adjacent to the spine or folding hinge area 6 of the support, while the supporint means 3 is adjacent to one of the free edges 7 of said support 1. That is, with the cover in the closed position, the cartridge receptacle 2 and book lie adjacent each other in a coplanar relationship and both substantially fill the space between the covers.

As schematically shown in FIG. 3, the neutral zone adjacent to thecassette support 2 presents a width Ll substantially equal to the width L2 of the book support 3, while the free zone 1 adjacent to said book support 3 presents a width L3 substantially equal to the width L4 of the cassette support 2.

Thus, by closing the cover-support in the manner of a book, a compact envelopment is obtained such as is schematically shown in cross-section in FIG. 4.

The cover-support can be completed by means of any type of fastener, as'schematized in 8. The width L5 of the spine 6 is substantially equal to the thickness L6, L7 respectively, of supports 2-3. A certain tolerance is naturally authorized between said thickness L5 on one hand and L6 and L7 on the other hand. If these differences exceed the limit of tolerance, it will be always possible to interpolate or add an additional thickness in theconfection of one of said supports 2 or 3.

The mutual relations between the free zones of the common support 1 and the dimensions of the supporting means 2-3 can be foreseen in width as well as in height, and this, in function of the chosen relative position of the cassette(s) on one hand and the book or similar sheaves on the other, as well as of the number of cassettes and/or books to be contained in a same cover-support. The tape cartridge support or receptacle 2 includes an opening 2a lying in a plane extending normal to the plane of cover member 1b and a bottom 2b lying adjacent the fold hinge area 6 in the embodiment shown in FIGS. 1-4.

In the different embodiments schematically shown in FIGS. 5 to 25, the same reference numerals relate to equivalent elements or elements having equivalent functions.

In the example of FIGS. 5 and 6, the same elements are found as in FIGS. 1 to 4, only an inversion has been introduced between the relative position of the supporting means 2-3 in relation to the common support 1. Here, the bottom of receptacle 2 is located at or adjacent a free edge 7 of cover 1a and opening 2a is towards the hinge area 6.

In the embodiments described above, an important function is obtained by reason of the placement and orientation of the cartridge receptacle 2 and the book 5. The book 5 has an edge 5a which also lies in a plane extending normal to the plane of the respective cover member 1a to which it is attached. When the cover is folded along fold line or area 6 and the opening 2a of receptacle 2 lies adjacent to and is blocked by the edge 5a of book 5 so that the tape cartridge is held secure in its receptacle when the cover is in the folded position. Likewise, the book support 3 has an edge 30 which at least partially blocks the cartridge receptacle opening 2a when the cover assembly is folded together, for preventing movement of the cartridge out of its receptacle.

In the example of FIGS. 7 and 8, the supporting means 2-3 have been fixed in a mutually adjacent position on one of the flaps of the common support 1. The length L8 of the flap of the common support which is unoccupied is equal to L2 L4, the width L5 of the spine 6 being substantially equal to the thickness L6 of said supporting means 2-3.

In the example of FIGS. 9 to 11, the supporting means 2-3 have been disposed at different levels, providing for cover-supports of lesser width. In this case, the supporting means 2 for the cassette, on one hand, and the supporting means 3 for the book on the other hand, are disposed diagonally with respect to the two flaps of the common support 1. In this embodiment, the width L9 of the supporting means 2 is substantially equal to the width L10 of the supporting means for the book. The height H of the common support 1 is equal to H1 H2 which represent the height of the supporting means 2 and 3 respectively. Here, the book is an integral part of the cover and the hinge area 6 comprises a part of the hinge or back of the book 5. Opening 2a in receptacle 2 again abuts edge 50 of book 5 when the cover is closed.

In the example of FIGS. 12 and 13, the supporting means 2-3 are mutually adjoining or approximately adjoining on the same flap of the common support 1. It suffices, inthis embodiment, that the width L11 of the raised flap of the common support be equal to L12 L13, that is to say, to the sum of the width of the two supporting means 2-3 respectively.

As shown in FIG. 14, a support 3 for a single book or sheaf is complemented by two supports 2, respectively for two cassettes 4.

In such an execution the following conditions must be met: L14 L15; L16 L17 and H3 I H4 H5.

Instead of a single supporting means 3 for a single book or sheaf, several such means for a corresponding number of books or sheaves can, obviously be substituted.

The example of FIG. 15, is a variation of the preceding example, according to which the cassettes have been turned by To this end the different supporting means are disposed so that L18 L19 L20 and H6 H7 H8.

FIGS. 16 and 17 show an embodiment practically inverse to that illustrated in FIGS. 1 to 4. Indeed, the supporting means 2 for cassette is disposed along the marginal edge of the cover-support while the supporting means 3 for the sheaf or book is located along the spine 6. In this execution the conditions'L2l L22 and L23 L24 must be met.

According to the example of FIGS. 18 and 19, the supporting means 2 for the cassette 4 is disposed along the marginal edge of the common support 1 while the supporting means for the sheaf or book 5 is affixed along the opposite marginal edge of said common support 1. Here, L25 must be equal to L26.

In the example of FIGS. 20 and 21, the supporting means 2 and 3 are affixed edge to edge on the common support 1 between the two spinal areas 6-6 At each side of said areas 6-6 the common support 1 extends a length L27 L28 and L29 L30, respectively.

In the embodiment according to FIGS. 22 to 24 a bellows device has been interposed between the common support and each of the supporting means for the cassette(s) and/or for the sheaf(ves) or book(s). The purpose of such an arrangement is to facilitatethe withdrawal of the cassette, the sheaf or the book without prejudice to the safe protection of the cassettes, sheaves and/or books, the number of such cassettes, sheaves and/or books associated to the same common support notwithstanding.

Thus, no matter what adjoining disposition is adopted between these supporting means, bellows as schematically shown in 9 may be used. These bellows can present any suitable shape and'adequate dimensions and can be executed in any appropriate material.

In the preceding embodiments, described only by way of example, the common support 1 has generally been considered as being formed from one continuous piece, the intermediate spines or hinge areas 6 (6) per mitting its almost instantaneous opening or closing.

However, the common support 1 could be of the loose-leaf type binder type constituted, for example, by rings, spiral attachment, perforations cooperating with pins or by any of the numerous binding means known per se joining together cover members la, lb along the hinge line area 10.

Such a realization, according to the appropriate choice of said binding means, permits obtaining multiple flap cover-supports. It is pointed out once more that, if the cassettes must necessarily be lodged in individual supports, (or in individual divisions of a common support), the books may be directly fixed onto the common support in such a manner that said commonsupport can be manipulated like a book, permitting access to the cassette or cassettes and permitting reading in the usual way.

The invention concerns the empty cover-support as well as cover-support containing cassettes and sheaves or books.
