Our iconic 1930's covers are available in a range of bright colours with vintage wax finishes and, best of all, come customised with the title and author of your choice. Be inspired by your favourite classic book, commemorate a special occasion or let your imagination run wild and create the literary masterpiece of your dreams - you choose it, we make it!

Combining the look and feel of a real book with the convenience of the gadget , 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 gadget 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 gadget
  • 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 gadget , allowing access to all buttons and power inputs whilst remaining virtually invisible when the device is fitted in place
  • gadget covers are finished with beautiful endpapers and customisable bookplates and are delivered in a beautiful presentation box


Our multi-device cases are fitted with our revolutionary 'CompatiCase' universal holders
These nifty holders work with both types of Kobo Touch eReader (both the original model and the current 2.0 version) and also any other type of ereader device that has a flat, smooth back – so you can be assured that you can continue to use your case even if you upgrade your eReader in the future!

The universal holders utilise incredibly high-strength adhesive pads that hold the device securely in place even when reading upside down. Despite their strength the pads still allow devices to be removed and repositioned quickly and easily without leaving any residue. The pads can be reused time after time without loosing their grip and can be restored to their original stickiness just by wiping with a damp cloth

Please note that as the CompatiCases are designed to fit a multitude of different device types that do not have auto sleep-wake functionality or rear-facing camera holes
