Cookbooks may benefit from the Triangle Book format more than any other book genre. Why? Have you ever tried to cook in your kitchen while looking at a cookbook? Maybe you could not keep the pages open due to a tight spine. And maybe the book was difficult to read while lying on the kitchen counter. But you didn’t want to touch it with food on your hands.

Every year in the U.S., ten percent of all book revenue comes from cookbooks. If bookstore managers put a propped Triangle Book cookbook on top of a stack of such books in their store, it will draw customer attention.

Instruction Manuals

Have you ever used a softcover instruction manual and found it difficult to perform its instructions? Due to its tight spine, the pages wouldn’t stay open. If your hands got soiled doing the work, so did the pages as you tried to keep them open.

That is when a manual in the Triangle Book format comes in handy. You set it up in its propped, triangle formation and PRESTO–flat pages that are easy to read, and the page you are reading stays open. It’s a totally hands-free operation.


Experts thought e-books would take over textbooks. But a large majority of college students still prefer printed textbooks. Why? Professors require student papers to have references; yet e-books can’t provide pagination due to differing e-devices and changing font size. Plus, students spend so much time on social media with smartphones that they say they need a break from screens.

Since many textbooks are large and heavy, some students complain that they are tiring to hold and to turn their pages. But reading them as they lie flat on a desk can cause neck strain.

The Triangle Book format works well for textbooks. Three main benefits are a hands-free operation, flat pages, and the proper reading angle. Plus, flat pages work better in a copy machine and produce better results than do curved pages.


Many business people make presentations to groups by using printed matter and graphics for their audience to view. Some presentations are made with Power Point to large groups. But that requires a computer and a large screen or monitor. For small to mid-size groups, presentations are often made with easel display binders, such as those made by Avery or Lion.

Making presentations to smaller groups with a large Triangle Book is better. It allows more pages; the structure is more stable; and its pages turn easier. But most of all, it has flat pages compared to an Easel binder’s curved pages. Plus, two pages can be viewed at one time. And pages do not have to be viewed through plastic envelopes as with an Easel binder.

An easel binder has the advantage of changing the material inserted into its envelopes. Yet, envelopes can be used with a Triangle Book as well.

Arts and Crafts

Have you ever tried to learn origami from a book? Or knit a hat? Or build a birdhouse? It’s not easy.

The Triangle Book® is perfect for learning to do arts and crafts or other projects. The pages lay flat, your hands are free, and you can easily read 2 full pages at one time.

Coffee Table Books

Packagers produce large, complicated, beautiful, hard cover books with thick pages that are glossy and of high-quality. Many contain illustrations or photos. This unique, book genre includes “coffee-table books” and “gift books.”

The main complaint readers have about these large books is that they are heavy to hold. So, a person often views or reads such a book as it lies on a desk, table, or the person’s lap.

In viewing books in this way, overhead lighting, as in a library, can reflect off glossy pages causing glare. This will not occur with a Triangle Book due to its 60-70 degree reading angle.

Many people like to display coffee-table books in their homes. But they usually do so with the book closed, so that visitors see only the book’s front cover. A propped Triangle Book in this genre can be like displaying artwork. And the homeowner can quickly rotate the pages to view any photo desired.
