Book Jacket Covers

The creation
of the Book Jacket Cover occured in 1939 by Arthur Brody, Founder of Brodart. Arthur Brody studied architectural photography at Columbia University and one day, after washing the emulsion off some film, he folded it around some books for added protection. When the covers' popularity grew among fellow students, the plastic book jacket cover was born. Today, Brodart book jacket covers are used to protect original paper jackets of library books, giving them a longer shelf life and increasing circulation.
"The clear covers are perfect to protect the dust covers of my expensive Railroad Book Collection. I wish I had known they were available a long time ago. A wonderful product."
Joe Candiliere
Railroad Book Collector
"Love the (Brodart Book Jacket) plastic covers for my personal library of books."
