Page 3-1 - A phased box is usually constructed from one continuous piece of board which is cut and creased to produce a base board, four walls, and four flaps.
Page 3-11 - Roll the book to the left and right and up and down to ensure the board is large enough. Place the book in a position which will allow sufficient margins for the flaps and place a weight on it. Using an upright triangle, mark the position of all the outer edges of the book on the board with broken lines.
Page 5-1 - The double-tray clam shell box is a common design that has been used by bookbinders for decades. It is a simple and efficient design made up of three parts: the small tray, the large tray, and the case.
