There are openings at either end into which a book can be slipped. The interior left side features a clear plastic slip-in pocket. The front of the cover is decorated with embroidery works and the embroidered words “Teaching is a Work of Heart.” In closed position it measures approximately 9-3/4” x 7-1/2”.

The applicable subheading for the book cover will be 6307.90.9889, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.
