Dust jacket protection

Hello all,

I was wondering what preferences you guys have concerning protection for dust jackets? Although I have bought some books which already had d/j protection, I have never applied this myself (having always preferred the original look and feel of a dust jacket). Nevertheless, there are now quite some books in my collection for which, I feel, it is rather necessary to preserve their condition.

Is there a lot of difference in the material for the protective cover (polypropylene, polyester, vinyl, mylar(?))? Is there any specific brand you would recommend? Preference in style (foil-only cover? Foil + paper sleeve?
And as a bonus question: how do you protect books without dust jacket?

Thanks in advance for sharing your, without a doubt, valuable opinions!

Thomas

Interesting to hear you're making a facsimile, Stu, I'm eager to see the result!

Very interesting. At first glance, I would think Tolkien designed the header, it very much resembles his calligraphic writing as seen in the Father Christmas letters.

Expensive indeed. Shouldn't this be in the "Wonders of eBay" thread?
