Love the convenience of your iPad, but miss the feel of a real book in your hand? This handmade cover gives you the best of both worlds as you protect and disguise your shiny new iPad in an actual old book transformed into a one of a kind iPad Book Cover.

I made this iPad Book Cover from a vintage children's textbook, the "Rainbow Nature Encyclopedia." The book cover is made of shiny teal book board, illustrated with a collage of various wild animals, repeated on the back cover. The interior front and back covers are padded to cushion and protect your iPad, and covered in a multicolored paisley patterned 100% cotton fabric. I love how this crazy fabric picks up all the wild colors of the cover!

Your iPad is held snugly against the back cover by 4 elastic straps, which have been sewn to the padding for extra durability and to prevent your iPad from sliding around. You can keep the cover closed with the elastic strap, or bend the cover back while using your iPad. The spine has been reinforced for durability, and you can charge your device and plug your headphones in while it's still in the case. You could even hide your iPad on your bookcase when you're not using it! The book measures approximately 11 5/8" x 8 5/8" x 7/8" when closed.

This cover will fit the first and second generation iPads, as well as the brand new iPad 3!

Each iPad Book Cover is made from an actual book, so expect some wear and tear from its previous life. I call them love marks. Treat your new Book Cover with the same care you would treat a treasured old book, and it will age gracefully in its new life.

Bibliophiles, don't fret! All of my work is made from damaged, discarded or repurposed books, 90% were being thrown out by libraries. All care is taken to never use valuable or rare books. Have a favorite book that is falling apart? Send it to me and I will turn it into a one of a kind purse, wallet, or device cover for you!
