This is a want, not a need. But I REALLY want one. The cover mostly, but the Mac Book would be nice too. Too bad they don’t fit Dell laptops and Kindles or this this would be an early birthday gift to myself…Wait, didn’t I say that about the Kindle??
These covers from BookBook are a book lover’s dream. I love the juxtaposition between modern technology and vintage literature. I have become obsessed with covers ever since I ordered my new Kindle. The covers on Amazon were pretty and functional, but the die-hard book lover in me wants to commemorate the legacy of the printed word.

I love the concept of designing my own Kindle cover and tried to do so on M-Edge. I designed two covers paying homage to Bronte and Austen, but, unfortunately, one of the pictures I used was copywritten so they couldn’t make my covers.

I saw a tutorial online of taking vintage books and journals and turning them into Kindle covers so I may try doing that. I have a weakness for DIY projects. If it is a success, I will post the final product here.
