How to Open a Book

This little number is getting a bit of traffic on my flickr posts. I found this little fly-away in a book from 1899 at an FOL sale recently. I think it had been tucked in the back since it was new. A friend of mine saw it and has decided to reproduce it for his wife who seems to get a kick out of that cracking sound...

If you're experiencing some deja vu, don't be frightened. Book Patrol also posted on this exact thing not a couple weeks ago. This little paper sure wants some publicity!
