Brodart Book Jacket Covers, Book Care and Book Repair
We have broadened our range of Brodart Book Covers, Book Care and Book Repair items to over 150 products.
More and more books are sold on eBay, often for considerable amounts of money. But even if you have managed to get an "eBay bargain", you should protect your treasured book against wear and tear.
This is very easy with a Brodart Book Jacket Cover: Simply measure the height of the spine to determine the cover size you need, and then choose the type of cover:
There are two types of Brodart cover for hardback books: the standard quality and the Archival quality for rare and valuable books.
The standard covers we stock are the Just-a-Fold range which simply wrap around the dust jacket. They have a paper backing to give the dust jacket extra protection, and there is no glue or tape involved in protecting your book.
The archival covers come in 3 ranges: either with a paper backing, as above, to fold round the dust jacket, or a clear film with a folded edge to wrap around the dust jacket, or as a clear film for books that do not have any dust jacket. None involves glue or tape to fit your book, the first two wrap around the dust jacket, and the film stays attached to books without jackets simply by the inside flaps providing enough "friction"
We also have a wide range of covers for paperback books, which the book slips into and again involves no tape or glue. Simply measure the height of teh spine to determine the size you require. These covers fold back to fit a wide range of book widths. If you wish to use these covers to protect hardback books, then you need to ADD to the height of the spine, the thickness of the boards (x4), so that the cover fits, or simply email us the dimensions of your book(s) and we will advise you the correct cover. In the event that they do not fit, or you have the wrong size we will gladly exchange the covers.
Trial packs are available at our ebay shop. Over 5,000 covers always in stock.
We are building a brodart co uk website with notes and comments and tips for book covers, book care and book repair. In the meantime, if you have any enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us through ebay - thank you, Andrew McGregor, blackislebooks
