Clarkson Book Support System

Book Support System designed by Christopher Clarkson to cater for books with a wide variety of structural variations. The system is used in institutions throughout the world. The book support is built up from lightweight units of synthetic foam. Synthetic foam allows a books uneven board surfaces, even with bosses and side- pins, to be equally supported over their entire exterior surface.

The particular density of foam was chosen for the important non-slip characteristic required and the grey colour was found preferable for a library environment. The concept of related units has dictated the use of generalised angles and dimensions in the design. Simplicity and ease of storage (impossible to achieve with combined tilt-and-wedge designs) are special features of the style. The units consist of three basic shapes in various format sizes:

Six units are required for each placement set. An optional seventh piece is available if an extra pad is required. Besides the synthetic foam units, one other piece of equipment is needed; a Œsnake, which is a strap of weighted fabric used to hold the book open, two being required for each Œplace setting.

The book supports are available as 6-piece sets for each of the three sizes: Large, Medium and Small. The larger wedges can also be used by themselves to display single-sheet items at a reasonable reading angle.
