Books having a flexible back are difficult to hold in an upright position when copying from . A makeshift combination of paperweights and other books is often used, but with unsatisfactory results.
Fig 2. Box Corner Makes a Book Holder
The book-holder shown in the sketch will hold such books securely, allow the pages to be turned easily and conceal the smallest possible portion of each page.
The holder can be cut out of a box corner and fitted with two screw eyes, which have the part shown by the dotted lines at A (Fig. 1) removed. The length of the back board determines the slope for the book rest. --Contributed by James M. Kane, Doylestown, Pa.
