The Kindle is an amazing product and is obviously the future of publishing. We just wanted to give people a way to have the best of both worlds.
Columbia, MO (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
One of the biggest drawbacks of owning an e-reader is missing the feel and aesthetic appeal of holding a real book. ReAuthored today announced the debut of the ReAuthored Kindle Case which brings the book and the e-reader together. ReAuthored re-purposes discarded hardback books into unique handmade e-reader cases.
ReAuthored was born from a simple idea, countless failed attempts, buckets of sweat, plenty of tears and most importantly, love. “We love the Kindle but missed our books,” said JC Holmes, co-founder of ReAuthored. “The Kindle is an amazing product and is obviously the future of publishing, we just wanted to give people a way to have the best of both worlds.”
The Kindle Cases are made by hand and offer customers all of the safety of a “standard” carrying case with the appeal of an old-fashioned book. Each case is as unique as the book that gave it life and designed to withstand daily use for years to come.
ReAuthored has created a way let books live on even as their relevance diminishes with the popularity of digital publication. “We stumbled upon a dumpster of old books on their final voyage and it made is sad to see them go out that way,” said Maha Abu-Libdeh, co-founder of ReAuthored, “We wanted to give the old books a new story.”
The creation of each case begins with finding the right book. ReAuthored only uses books that would otherwise be discarded for their cases. The books are then cut, covered with protective fabric inside and out before being tested for proper fit and durability, all of which is done by hand.
ReAuthored is entering the highly-competitive accessories market with their Kindle case but hopes to introduce cases for the Nook, Kobo and other e-readers soon.
