  • Patent number: 11273658
    Abstract: A ridged paged book has an interleaved book binding that incorporates page binding couplers that extend from one page to the other along a binding side to enable each page to open and close. A cover binding coupler extends from the front and/or back cover to an adjacent page and may have a cover portion that is longer than a page portion. This longer cover portion may extend along the recess of the cover to provide stability of the cover binding. Pins extend through the covers and pages along a binding side and into the binding couplers to create a durable binding for the rigid paged book. A ridged paged book may have an interleaved book binding configured proximal to a top and/or bottom edge. A ridged paged book may be made out of metal including the covers and pages and the couplers and pins.
