Intellectual Property

Google has tons of patent applications online, including some interesting book and book cover patents. You can find inventions like  "dummy book for library shelves" and "doll with integrated book feature in doll cavity". Have yet to track down who first patented the jacket with flaps design we use today, but here is an awesome early electronic book.

Just type in "book" or "book cover" in Google patent search and all kinds of curious things show up.

I was first hepped to these by Sam Potts of Sam Potts Inc. Sam recently closed up shop and set off to China for a year. He will be updating us as to his whereabouts and whatfors here
