RAYMOND H. GARMAN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

PAINTING-BOOK.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 12, 1907.

Application filed December l0. 1906. Serial No. 347.184.

To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, RAYMOND H. GARMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at 155 Winthrop avenue,

{,Chicago, Illinois, have invented certain new and usetures and4 details of construction and the combination and association of claimed.

In theaccompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of my painting book with the front cover opened back, showing a chamber on the inner side thereof, and a tray of paints partly in dotted lines, almost fully inserted in said chamber. as well as some other features. Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the top side of my book when closed, illustrated in Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a similar view to Fig. l, of my book, but with the book modied in some respects,-tl1ere being a portion attached in a hinge manner for containing the paint chamber; this portion is adapted to be swung o1` folded outward when the book is open, and inward against the inner side of the front cover. when it is de- Sired to close the book. Fig. 4 is a cross section of Fig. 3 on line 4 4, of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a viewsimilar to Fig. 3, but showing the attached hinged part for earrying thebodies of paint, the brushes, and the palette, formed by securing a suitable foldable piece of cardboard or other appropriate material of desired shape, to the inner side of the cover of the book, as hereinafter described; and which when properly folded together' forms a paint chamber in the book. Fig. 6 is a top plan of my book as illustrated in Fig. 5, when the book is closed, with the paint bodies and someother parts shown in dotted lines located inside of the book. Fig. 7 is a longitudinal section of my book shown in Fig. 6, taken on line 7-7 of Fig. G, which shows the paint chamber formed within the book, with bodies oi paint in the chamber and some other features. Fig. 8 is a view of my book similar to Fig. 5, but with the attached hinged portion for receiving and carrying the paints, shown as an extended part of the front cover of the book.

In making my improved painting book, I provide leaves of desired size, of paper or other flexible material adapted to have illustrations, pictures, or other subparts hereinafter described and jects painted upon them with paints or colors, and assemble these, in numbers desired to form the painting leaves a, of my book, and I provide a connected. binding b, at the -base end of the leaves to hold them in place in quite the ordinary way, and also provide covers c, on the sides of the book of desired suitable material; I further provide means by which bodies of paint may be conveniently kept with the book for ready use in painting therein when desired; this latter I prefer to accomplish by supporting and maintaining the bodies o paints within the book, between the first painting leaves and the outside cover, when the book is closed, in a manner to enable them to be brought out conveniently accessible for use when the book is opened; to this end as illustrated in Fig. l ofthe drawings, I have provided a chamber d, formed on the inside of the iront cover of the book extending longitudinally to the leaves, with its opening towards the base portion oi the leaves-said opening being adjacent to the back binding or base of the leaves, and extending crosswise of the leaves as shown; the chamber is of shape and size to receive a tray of paints that may be slid into it while this cover is opened Widely back; in Fig. l a tray c containing bodies or tablets f of paints is shown mostly inserted into the chamber.

It is preferable not to have the raised or cover part g, that helps to form the chamber, extend the entire length of the cover, but to make it terminate some little distance from the back binding of the leaves as shown in Figs. l and 2, which enables better opprtunity for grasping and withdrawing the tray when desired.

To icinl'orce the back binding of the book, and keep its back end fully and stiffly in place up to the combined thickness of the assembled leaves, and raised part g, I provide a reinforcing part h, prefer ably of sub stantially the same thickness as the tray chamber; this reinforcing part may be made of cardboard or other suitable material either in one or more pieces, andis bound in the book transversely te the leaves, in similar manner as the leaves are bound in place, as illustrated; as above. explained, when the book is closed the reinforcing part will hold the back binding up above the combined thickness of the leaves7 and maintain a substantially uniform contour to the back binding as shown in Fig. 2; it will also largely fill the space in the book, when said book is closed, between that end of the paint chamber and the back binding of the book serving thereby as means to prevent the paint tray from partially sliding out oi its chamber when the book is closed and is being handled or shaken about.

As means for protecting the leaves of the book next to the tray from coming into adhesive contact with parts ofthe bodies of paint when the book is closed, and soiling the book, or sticking to it through said contact;

l provide an attached protecting sheet or leafil,` preferably of non-adhesive material such as suitablel oiled or waxed paper.

ln Fig. 3, I have shown an attached portion j, in the nature of a tray or box, having a sliding cover lc, shown partly withdrawn. This attached portion is a modified means ior forming the paint chamber, it also constitutes the paint tray or supporting means; it is adapted to be swung outward sidewise from the cover when the book is open, so as to bring the tray, withritspaints conveiriently located for use, outside of the area covered by therleaveso the .boolewlren they are Vturned forward andiback, and'iis preferably fattaehedvalongf at Zin a hingedor foldab'le manner,.to the inside of theiront covcrfof the `ibook, and whenfoldedfinward against the?l inside 'of the cover .forms 'a' paint chamber, here-initialed d, which 'becomes located' with-in the book :if the bookis then closedff In Figwi the bodiesz of paint are illustratedin posi-` tion `betwe'enthemainportion of the .hinged part j andI its removable cover c; and within thebox or tray there mayialso :be kept .paintingi brushes m shown locatedf l therein. -i

In :Figsl have illustrated/the attached'hinged pori tion fonreceiving'and supporting the bodies of paint, as vbeingfform'ed by' taking a suitable pieceiof foldable cardboard,'or other appropriate. iiexible material, with' up-turned edges-n, and a creased or folding line o, preferably zacross Vnear its central portion, .and have attached fthat. part of this :foldable :portiong notintended for carrying the bodies of =paint,:1to thelinside of thef front cover of thebook, in .position as shown in Fig-5, so that its folding'line comesl along near-the edge of the book-s cover, andallow the partfor' carrying the paints to beswung outward. and extend over the side. of said cover outside-.of thefarea thatfwill befcovered by the@ Asshownv in Fig. 5, -I prefer to have the extended* part formingithe hinged-'portion somewhat smaller than the partiattaohed tothe inside of the cover of thefbook, y

so .whenithei extended Apart is folded inward. over the partsattachedto the inside cover, the up-tinned edges n, of thefformer will V.telescope into thezup-zturned edges n, of the latter as illustrated clearly in Fig..7, thus form#` ings withinthewboolgnwhen theflparts are. properly folded, and thebook closed, a chamber forfreceiving andrsupportingithepaints as hereinabove described;

thisiposition and; condition .is shown quite clearly iby therorosssection illustration of Figa 7.

As meanszfor holding-theipaint brushes .m in position in the tray orchamber, I have, as shownfin .Figs` 5, 7 and 8, provided suitableholes q through the 11p-turned edges `n, of proper sizeto permit the insertion of the.

handles: of said brushes.v

As means or holding thelhinged portionthatcarries" the paints, in position-When saidportion isv folded ready for closing the book, I haveprovided a suitable flexible band 1, preferably of elastic material, with its ends secured to the cover of the .book so that the band may be pulled over this portion when folded.

It desired the attached foldable portion for carrying the paint, brushes and palette, may beformed by an Aextension of the cover, provided with a folding Vline 0,

and with rip-turned edges as shown in Fig. 8; in this instance l have illustrated this attached foldable portion as an extension of the side of the front cover in position to be folded inward before the book is closed, i'n the manner already described, and to be closed with Vthe book to form substantially Vthe character of paintchamber illustrated in Fig. 7. Of course further modifications 1n constructiori'andY details may be made to carry out the'essentialifeatures of my invention and still come within its scope and meaning,and I do not therefore desire to be'confined to the exact details of arrangement and construction of parts-illustrated and described.

What I regard as new and desire to secure by, Letters Patent is:
