Also looking – this has been a request since I gave photo books as Xmas gifts!

Thanks for any suggestions…

Although UK based, they do ship internationally.

What’s underneath the jacket book cover? They don’t show any pictures of it.

Can you remove page numbers? I have pages in my project that don’t have numbers. Can I just remove them all?

Most Antiquarian booksellers carry and sell protective clear plastic covers for their collectable books. The brand name that comes to mind is Brodart, but I’m sure there are others as well. They come in many sizes and prices and are very easy to place on your books.

check out your local library- that’s where I got mine (they were really nice and gave me one, but I bet if your local library won’t give you one they will tell you where you can get one.)

good luck.

Another way of protecting the dust jacket is to have a book binder make a custom slip case- that’s maybe more than most people want to spend, but I’ve found that the price on a slip cased hard cover book can go much higher because of the percieved higher value/quality  due to this kind of presentation. It pays for itself and then some. And book binders are not as hard to find as one migh think….....

Peter,

Blurb Forum Policies include…...

This Space is Not for Rent
Promoting your book in the Forums is not only allowed, but very much encouraged. However, posts about miracle weight-loss pills and get-rich-quick schemes are not. Also, regardless of its validity, posting the same message over and over across different threads is considered spamming. In short, we don’t allow advertisements or spam of any kind. If you come across any ads or spam on the Forums, give us a holler at “forums at blurb dot com,” and we’ll get rid of it.

Your post is obviously an advert, so not allowed. You have posted this more than once in the forums which means it is also spam, which is not allowed.

I apoligize. Actually just wanted to share my enthusiasm after a long search for a solution. A solution I see many others are looking for. Please forgive.

Hello

Does anyone have any feedback on the two sites suggested on this forum (Care4Books and Brodart)?  In particular, which specific product is best to use?  I am based in Hong Kong so not able to go into the shops and have a look at the various protectors avaiable.  Any recommendations much appreciated.  It’s difficult to make a decision based on the websites.

Judith.

http://www.photobookboxes.com/ have some protective covers. They are not plastic, though, but they look quite nice.

I haven’t even published my first book yet, but I already want an extra dust cover!  Am I the only one?
