What eReaders lack in personality, they make up for in convenience — like, isn't it convenient nobody can tell you're tittering over 50 Shades of Grey? Unless you’re in a gimp suit. Can’t help you there.
Built by America’s oldest bookbinder and designed by MIT eggheads, Out of Print’s tough-as-nails jackets are gorgeous replicas of the original book covers of last century’s definitive tomes — from the art deco eyes of Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby, to the titular white whale of Melville’s Moby Dick to the temptress of Nabokov’s Lolita.
And just like a true hardcover, the jackets will artfully weather over time the way a good book should.
Simply pre-order on Kickstarter, and you’ll receive an email requesting your choice of cover. Come September, your eReader’s new outfit will arrive in the mail.
However, you’ll still need a good alibi when asked “so, whatcha readin, gimp?”
