That neat litle Trick was developed by Hugo Peller in Switzerland if my
memory doesn't fail me.
The Ribbon runs through slots cut in the sides of the slipcase, which is
mounted inside a clampshellcase. The ends of the Ribbon are fastened to
the Clampshellcaseboards inside. When you open the clampshellcase, the
ribbon straightens out and lift's the book out of the slipcase.
