The Old Book Case for iPad

The Old Book case for iPad (aka. Hard Cover Jacket for the iPad) is inspired by old out-of-print hard cover books librarians ruggedized in an attempt to make them last a few years longer. Hand made in New York, the Old Book gets better with age with every scratch it accumulates as it protects your iPad.

While traveling, the screen of an iPad is especially vulnerable to objects that may exert uneven presure over the glass. When the case is closed, a three-millimeter-thick hard fiberboard distributes the presure, while a microfiber cloth, backed by a thin layer of foam, sandwiched between the glass and the fiberboard helps keep the screen clean every time the case is opened and closed.
