Here is an interesting one, books wrapped in cling film (Plastic Wrap for some readers).

My view is that it provides zero protection as it is very easy to rip, but also because it bunches up, blurs the Dust Jacket.

Union tell actors to avoid Hobbit films

Global actors' unions have told their members not to take roles in the new The Hobbit movies amid a row over pay.

Cate Blanchett, Sir Ian McKellen and Andy Serkis are among the stars who have been linked with the two big-budget Lord of the Rings prequels.

But seven unions in the US, Australia, the UK and Canada said producers refused to negotiate a deal with them.

Thanks, I did not know that the first impression dust-wrapper does not have the impression number on the dust-jacket spine.

Does anyone know which impression they stopped putting the impression number on the spine?

Every copy that I have ever seen has a box, additionally they should also be wrapped in tissue paper.
