Synopsis

A rather strange bookbinder binds books in exteriors that illustrate the contents of the book, and Superman learns that three members of this man's club demand their books be bound in strange and unusual bindings. The Man of Tomorrow agrees to help out, since the money to be paid for the bindings will go to his choice of charities. Little does he know that Lois has a book she wants bound too: in the Man of Steel's own cloak!
