With much reaction to the iPad this week here is an interesting BOOK to add to your collection.

“Introducing a new case based on an old idea. BOOK is a hand made hard cover book jacket on the outside, with a sleeve tailored to the iPad on the inside. Protect your digital device safely and then shelve it, carry it, put it in a book-bag, or leave it on the coffee table. BOOK is made with the highest grade of sustainable, durable, and natural materials to insulate your iPad in an enduring style”

Check out the BOOK here

    my wife and i have been chatting about this…as, for a long time, i wasnt thrilled about digital books, cause like the littlebrownmushroom crew i NEED books…to see them, to touch them, to dirty them, to feel them around me….


    then i figured…ok, so Basho can walk around with his poems in his head and a sack cloth on his back, than damn shit, i can take a portable device and carry my life love’s around me….

    so, ok, 1 digital book, with 1 cover….

    only thing: i think a good cover needs scratchability on it….or thumb-print stained….

    makes me want to buy an iPad just to get a BOOK cover!

    That’s hilarious. I’m waiting for the iPrinter, an $800 device to make a bound hardcopy of the ebooks and emagazines I buy so I can carry them around at times when I don’t want to take my iPad. Now THAT will really change publishing. ;^)

    For me the BOOK is making this digital device look and feel like a beautiful handmade book, the kind you can love, hold and dirty. Visually and conceptually it is such a great idea.

    Liz — might I suggest another human being –“the kind you can love, hold, and dirty” — rather than some electronic device.

    I hope they just make an e-reader that smells like ink. Otherwise I’m back to huffing paint thinner.

    What I know is that when the sun isn’t hitting the solar panels at the cave, or when the storage battery’s been used up for the heater (or the fan), it’s damn hard to get the electronic gear to do much more than look pretty. They keep their secrets when they’re powered down.

    On the other hand, I can turn pages with my toes (or, worst case scenario, my nose) if I’m incapacitated and I really need to entertain myself with all those books that are on the shelves. Fingers and toes–the original digital tools.

    Happy reading.

    p.s. to whiskets: I’ve got paint thinner in the cave if you need to huff some. The books all smell like mold.
