I The present invention relates to a folding type of advertising device in the formof a compact and attractive folder designed to 7 have the appearanceof an ordinary rectangular folder when in" closed position, butto reveal a series of uniquely arranged figurative representations when opened or unfolded.
Myinvention possesses further advantage in that similar appearances of progressively larger figures are presented when unfolded sections are viewed from either side. To the accomplishment of the foregoing and related ends, said invention, then, consists of the means hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims. 7
The annexed drawings and the following description set forth in detail certain'mechanism embodyin the invention, such disclosed means constitutlng, however, but one of various mechanical forms in which the principle of the invention may be used.
In said annexed drawings:
Fig. 1 is a view from one side ofthe device embodying the principles of my invention, when in complete unfolded position; Fig. 2
is another view showlng only one of the cover sections unfolded; Fig.v 3 is a section along the line 3--3 of Fig. 2 showing the manner in which the panels fold one upon the other.
3o device conslsts of the rectangular cover members 1 and 2 which are joined together by the alternately folded sections 3, 4;, 5 and 6 having the common base line 7 As represented in Fig. 1, the intermediate sections 3, l, 5 and 6 have displayed thereonthe human figures 8,
v .9, 10 and 11, respectively.
These latter representative figures 8, 9, 10
and 11 are printed or otherwise represented upon both sides ofthe intermediate folding panels 3, 4:, 5 and 6. Accordingly, when the device is placed in folded positionwith only the front cover 1 open, the effect shown in Fig. 2 will result; that is, the figures 8 and 10 of Fig. 1 will appear to view whereas the maybe increased as desired.

Referrin more particularly to Fig. 1, my 1. An advertising device comprlsing two reverse figures 12 and 13 of the figures 9 and i 11 of Fig. 1 respectively will'appear inintermediate positions of the figures 8 and 10. As
will be seen in Fig. 2, by making the representative figures of progressive variation in size, there results the unique and pleasing appearance of several representative characters standing one behind the other. I
In the annexeddrawings there has been shown but four ofsuch intermediate folding panels, but it'is understood that this number In Fig. 3 there is shown. a manner 1n which the representative figures are positioned one the front cover-1 is behind the other when unfolded. It will thus be means stated by any of the following claims. or the equivalent of such stated means he em- I therefore particularly point out and disseen that I, have provided" 7 a simple and compact advertising folder ,which may be easilymade, and whichposrectangular cover sections'and a series of intermediate folded 'sections having outlines conforming to figurative representations, said order.
