Im looking for printable photos or files of the front and back covers of this book:
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

I figured for the price of binding I may as well get proper covers as well.

Can anyone send me one? Or both?

The book is still in print. Why not just buy a new one--less than $20?

should not be any concern. In this case it is legally considered as "fair use", not a problem at all. Now if you start selling copies that is not "fair use." But for personal use such as this, it is legally considered fair use, it is legal.

Bug On!


ps....My legal expertise was learnt by watching countless episodes of Perry Mason.

I rest my case.

Because I can have this bound for less than $5 and then as a bonus itll lay flat and/or I can fold it over.

I always liked the spiral bound older version, since it pays flat at single-page size. You can come close if you saw the binding, three-hole punch it, and use three rings to hold the pages. You can use any cover you want in that case.

That is how the original issues of the idiot book were bound.

A far superior method for actual use and not for leisurely reading.

I had one of my Bentleys spiral bound because pages were loose.

Dont forget to laminate the front and back covers now youve got a proper spiral bound manual. Very Happy

Already done. Laminating the covers was more than half the cost. Plus the color printing because Id long lost the original covers.

The early covers were in black and white at a time when color covers could have easily been done. The b/w covers are more interesting IMHO.

It will last you longer if you get the whole thing laminated (as individual pages Laughing ), or even better, scanned in it as a searchable pdf. For personal use of course.

The one thing I dont like about my old copy is that now the pages are practically perforated and easy tear out. The bad thing about my new copy is that the pages flop over. I'll get around to bringing my old copy in to work and scan it eventually....

I took mine to kinkos, had the binding cut off and three hole punched. Then put it in a three ring binder.

Meh, fair schmair. I bet the same little fellas worried about copying a cover of a 50 year old manual are the same ones buying knockoff chinese bullshit. Very Happy
