Are you in luck or what!

Brodart has a new little online tool that will guide you to the specific cover you want

I like the Brodart Fold-On Archival Quality style myself.

I like the Brodart Fold-on Archival covers as well. I have used them to cover all the books in my collection. I buy the 10" high one and get the extra length, they work great for covering all of the trade editions. The link to the specific one is http://www.shopbrodart.com/shop/cb/prod ... m=10426005.

There is also a great thread on thedarktower.com that talks about protecting books and provides some great tips for putting on the covers. The link to that thread is http://www.thedarktower.com/palaver/sho ... php?t=5813

Is there Broadart for a non-jacketed book? I just recieved a UK copy of a Fforde book and it has no DJ. I've never covered any of my books myself, so don't know. Maybe it should just be bagged?

You can buy plastic covers for hardback and paperback books. There are several types on the market.

Thomas I'm in the UK so I only have a link to my UK supplier. I'm sure there are plenty of companies in the US who sell these. Here is a link to the UK one:
