A slipcase is a four or five-sided box, usually
made of high-quality cardboard, into which binders, book
s or book sets are slipped for
protection. Special editions of books are often slipcased.
Protective slipcases may be issued for compact
s instead of the
or DVD keep case
may be chosen for aesthetic or economic reasons. Larger slipcases
that are designed to house one or more jewel cases or DVD keep
cases are often used in packaging for special
releases of CDs or DVDs.
