“With a focus on preserving traditional bookbinding, we’ve come full circle with the DODOcase for the Kindle,” said Craig Dalton, co founder and President of DODOcase. “It’s important to us that we support a device that is so synonymous with books and backed by so many reading enthusiasts, and now with the DODOcase the Kindle can be the ‘book’ it is, inside and out!”
“The Kindle is all about the convergence of books and technology, and moving a revered pastime into a new medium,” added Patrick Buckley, co founder and CEO of DODOcase. “It’s this convergence of old and new that drives us at DODOcase. Our cases preserve century’s old bookbinding techniques and offer a nostalgic wink to the tradition of reading.”
