German staple binding with mylar window on the spine

I’ve seen several staple-bound, or wire-bound, books while at Northwestern. All of the ones I’ve seen have been either German or Russian. This particular book was withdrawn, and I wanted to do a reback on it…however, I’ve done so many rebacks already! Then I decided that I wanted to keep it more as an example of this interesting kind of binding, so I put a little window on the spine while I was repairing it. Now it is functional again AND you can see the staples on the spine!
