Combining the look and feel of a real book with the convenience of the Kobo Glo , our retro covers are the perfect way to protect your device and make an amazing present for anyone who loves to read or are great as a gift to yourself!

  • All our Kobo Glo covers are hand-crafted to order in our Leicestershire workshop using traditional book binding materials and techniques
  • Cases are slimline and lightweight yet durable, with a high-quality hardback construction and splashproof finishing, providing enhanced protection for your Kobo Glo
  • Our Retro-inspired cases are made using sturdy laminated binding paper printed with our exclusive digital artwork to look like beautiful book covers
  • On the inside our covers are fitted with easy-grip holders that securely grip the Kobo Glo , allowing access to all buttons and power inputs whilst remaining virtually invisible when the device is fitted in place
  • Kobo Glo covers are finished with beautiful endpapers and customisable bookplates and are delivered in a beautiful presentation box


Make your cover even smarter!

Our Kobo Glo Smart Covers have a built in auto sleep-wake switch allowing you to start reading as soon as you open your cover and reducing battery use when the cover is closed. Smart covers also feature magnetic gold clasps to ensure your cover stays firmly closed when not in use

If you would like to upgrade your cover just select 'Smart Cover' in the 'Upgrade' drop-down menu above


All our Kobo Glo cases are fitted with plastic cradles that have been moulded to the exact dimensions of the eReader – providing 360 degree device protection whilst still allowing easy access to all buttons and power connections

Our Kobo Glo case only fits the Kobo Glo and will not fit other models of eReaders or tablets (such as the new Kobo Glo HD)
However we do make covers with this design for many other types of device – please visit the relevant shop sections for more details

Our Retro cases are fully bespoke and feature the 'Title' and 'Author' text of your choice on the front and spine of the cover
