Bookbinding method and apparatus

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5692866.

A method and apparatus for binding books wherein a stack of pages are collated and aligned together. This stack is covered, top and bottom, with end pages which now comprise the first and last pages of the stack. Each end page includes a self-adhesive or sticky-back surface that is temporarily covered with a protective sheet. This stack is inserted within a clasp that is subsequently crimped, thereby securely binding the stack together. The crimped stack is then placed within an outer case or covering whereupon the protective sheet is removed and adhesive is exposed and applied to the case in order to secure or bind the pages to the case. Final compression of the case insures proper adhesion.
