Strategically placed folds and cuts transform single folios into pockets and/or windows and is an adaptation of a drum leaf or board book. It’s another useful structure for single folio pages, as it allows for using multiple paper colors and types, as well as other possibilities to alter the page. The text block can be bound in a variety of covers, but we will make a simple schoolbook cover for our volume. Our models will serve as a sample book showing the structure and possible page variations it allows.
