As part of a family of avid readers, this quote struck a lovely chord when I came across it, "Reading gives us somewhere to go when we have to stay where we are." This quote has been chemically etched into a galvanized metal panel and attached to a black faux leather tablet cover. The upper and lower edges of the cover are accented by strips of recycled bicycle inner tubing.

The cover will fit most standard ten inch tablets or larger ereaders. It has a dark gray faux suede lining, black elastic holders for the electronic device and a tab closure.

Custom orders with your favorite quote or image are welcomed!

My coworkers and I commissioned a custom piece. Everything was perfect: great communication, excellent craftsmanship and our boss loved it. Thank you for all of your help and for being patient with all the changes that we made throughout the design process. Highly recommend!

Thanks you so much for your lovely sign. My granddaughter loved it for her 21st birthday as much I loved giving it to her. It arrived just one time.

Thanks again,
