phase box

Broader Term: 

n. ~ A simple, relatively inexpensive box designed to offer immediate, short-term protection of books, scrapbooks, albums, and other bound items.


A phase box is typically constructed from two sheets of board that have been glued at their centers to form a cross. The boards are creased so that they can be wrapped around the book and are held together with string or hook-and-loop fasteners.
