Like a thin cover of a shoe box, it fits over the book. An extra plastic sheet drapes and covers the exposed part of the book pages.

Keep your books dust-free with Booktop Covers.

       Many books used to (and some still do) come with a cardboard sleeve like you describe.

       That's a full cardboard sleeve, which is a pain to pull out and then put back. Here it's just a top. (and thin back)

       Is there one per book (fiddly), or could you provide a wide one, as a dust-awning for a whole shelf?   

       In the latter case, the cover itself could be dusted off from time to time by a sort of millizamboni. (A nanozamboni sounds better, but you wouldn't be able to watch it work).

       <- passive/aggressive with links? Maybe it's down to the explanation being shoehorned.   

       Although, that extra paper folding thing, around a book's cover, probably does need some flaps.

       Perhaps, [pash], it would help if you linked a drawing of what it *does* look like, as well as what it *doesn't*. I'm still not sure what you're describing.

       I imagine it's an open-book cover - like a dish-cover - for leaving something lying on the desk, so you can pile stuff up on top of it, and the cat doesn't leave personalized bookmarks. Bun proferred.
