Vintage book covers for your ereader

This is too good to pass up. Over at Etsy (where I buy a lot of stuff) Randy is making ereader covers from vintage books. Here’s what he says:
For those who want to go hi tech but still stay classic, I am making covers from vintage books, comics and magazines, for the iPad, Kindle, Kobo, Sony, Nook and more.
The reader is held securely inside with elastic straps. It looks like a regular “old school” book, which makes it easy to identify, store and truly unique!
Some of the covers are made from vintage books and some I use traditional book binding methods to construct the cover to the highest standards and quality. The images I use on the covers are the original material and not photocopies. The best part of these is that you can choose the book cover!
I am adding new covers all the time so please stop back and check them out.
If you don’t see something you like, please email me as I have a large stock of inventory and welcome custom orders.
Covers start at about $22 and go up from there to about $50 for a vintage Playboy. The Tom Swift one above is only $22.50.
Tip of the hat to the Gadgeteer.
