After buying some books in a book store, we usually use a paper bag for carrying those books. Even though there is only one book, people will still chose to use paper bags because of having no other way for carrying it. Portable Book is a design proposal which extends the original structure of a book. We add a cutting design shaped as a handle in the book flap which allows users to carry the book without using bags. This design not only can decrease the use number of paper bags, but also increase the portability of books. After finishing the folding design, the part that people hold won’t cut your fingers.
