3. OPTIONAL: Cut two pieces of colored or patterned paper or cloth 1½ inches larger on all sides than the height and width of cover board.
4. Spread glue stick over one entire side of one cover board.
5. Center glued side of board on paper/cloth cover and press down firmly.
6. Cut corners of the cover at a diagonal but don't make cuts closer than 1/4 inch from the corners of board.
7. Glue and fold edge of cover material around corners of board.
8. Repeat for back cover.
9. Spread glue stick over the inside front cover. Center first page of accordion over the cover and press down firmly. Use bone folder if available.

In total, the black-and-white portion of the collection consists of about 175,000 black-and-white film negatives, encompassing both negatives that were printed for FSA-OWI use and those that were not printed at the time. To view the unprinted negatives, go to the description for any FSA/OWI image and select the "Browse neighboring items by call number" link. Most unprinted negatives simply have "Untitled" as their caption. Some have titles based on similar images that appear to have related content. Color transparencies also made by the FSA/OWI are available in a separate section of the catalog: FSA/OWI Color Photographs [ view description ].
The philosopher Simone Weil wrote that feeding the hungry when you have resources to do so is the most obvious of all human obligations . She says that as far back as Ancient Egypt , many believed that people had to show they had helped the hungry in order to justify themselves in the afterlife. Weil writes that Social progress is commonly held to be first of all, "...a transition to a state of human society in which people will not suffer from hunger."  Social historian Karl Polanyi wrote that before markets became the world's dominant form of economic organization in the 19th century, most human societies would either starve all together or not at all, because communities would invariably share their food.
