Yes, there are now the electronic readers ready for downloads of your favorite books but some of us still love the feel of holding a real book and turning its pages. It can be less expensive to purchase used books at second hand book stores and garage sales then to purchase the rights to download a book that you can't easily share. Plus you don't have to worry about having someone steal your book like you would with an expensive electronic reader.

This paperback book cover is a perfect way to keep what you are reading private and in style. The unique design has handles that allow you to easily tote it around with you when you travel by slipping it over your forearm or grasping the handle like you would a purse-- or even hang it on a set of handlebars at the gym. The Velcro tab fastener keeps the book from opening unexpectedly and not only losing your place, but having the book fall out of the cover. The sewn in gross grain ribbon keeps your place in your book--no more dog-eared pages.

Flying cranes design oncharcoal background with a coordinating pin dot on dusty mauve lining. A touch of gold metallic gold outlining enhances this design. I am willing to remove the book cover handles on request. For a great gift idea, give a gift card from your preferred book store with your book cover purchase.

This larger sized book cover is made of 100% cotton (80% of my fabrics are imported directly from Japan and stored in a smoke free environment) lightly interfaced and fully lined with a carefully chosen fabric that compliments the cover design. This larger size fits paperback books measuring a maximum size of 8 1/4 inches tall by 5 3/8 inches wide with a spine up to 1 1/4 inches deep. This larger size is known as a trade or text size paperback and this size paperback book covers fits many but NOT ALL paperbacks in this size range since there is such a wide variation published. This will not fit hardback books since the bindings aren’t flexible enough to bend to slip on the cover.

I carry 3 sizes of book covers in my Etsy shop. My customers will usually purchase the standard size first (since it fits most older books) then the more recent Premium size and for a third option this text/large size.

NOTE: Only the book cover pictured in the first photo is for sale--any props pictured aren't included. A photo of another book cover may be included to show size and the inside of the cover and is not offered in this listing.

We all hate overpaying for shipping and my listed shipping costs are best estimates for the individual item. If you wish to purchase more than one item at one time, I can combine them in a special reserved listing for you and recalculate the weight and most likely save you excess postal fees. I can also combine items from both of my stores into one purchase—Please convo me first BEFORE you make payment! I am unable to combine shipping once you have paid for your selection. Wish to make a purchase but don’t see your country listed?—it might be possible.
