Judge A Book By Its Cover

Survival of the fittest may be the rule of nature, but when it comes to ensuring the longevity of your electronic reader, a little extra help goes a long way. Enter this handsome protective cover, designed in the classic style of an early printing of Charles Darwin's On The Origins of Species. Handmade by traditional bookbinders in England, this cover slips neatly over your electronic reader, protecting it from all the nicks and dings encountered in the wilds of everyday life. E-reader cover fits the Kindle 3, iPad cover fits the iPad 2. E-reader cover for Kindle Fire is coming soon.

These stately covers are also available in four other titles: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, Einstein's Theory of Relativity, and Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace.

Made in

The Manor Bindery, created in 1976 by a group of friends with a common passion for books and fine binding, get its namesake from the Manor of Cadland, an estate once used by William the Conqueror himself. Bringing together a small team of craftsmen, expert in binding and restoring antiquarian books the company has expanded and diversified into new and interesting fields. One of which is the manufacture of false books. Some might say this is unusual but the use of false books to conceal doors, weapons and other secrets is as old as bookbinding itself. The Kindle and iPad are the perfect example of wrapping new, modern technology with the look and nostalgic feel of an antiquarian book.

Just not what I expected.

By

Comments about Ipad & Kindle Book Case - Origin of Species:

The case was described as coming from a famous bookbinder so I was expecting a lovely fabric covered book. It is more plastic-y than I expected it to be. Think hardbound textbook rather than beautifully covered heirloom.

      Almost nostalgic

      By 

      from Afghanistan

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Ipad & Kindle Book Case - Origin of Species:

      I really love this cover for it's nostalgia factor. I did expect it to be cloth or leather. It is more similar to a regular hardback cover with a glossy paper covering instead. I won't return it because I like it, although I would have preferred a more vintage construction.
