These long, slender account books were sewn in the stab binding style at one short end and kept handy by hanging the book on the wall from its sewn end. The structure ... repeats this historical model & is meant to be hung on the wall as well. Each book comes with its own nail and is housed in an acrylic slipcase."--Prospectus.
