There are plenty of cases out there that make it look like you're carrying something other than an expensive tablet. This Origin of Species Case, though, makes it look like you're carrying something nobody will ever want to steal: a tattered, old hardbound book from the library.
Clad in the classic style of an early edition of Charles Darwin's most famous book, the case literally looks like a book you stole out of your grandfather's attic. Worse, it's not some exciting volume about cool stuff from the old days or whatever. Instead, it's that old evolution book that you'll only read if: it was mandatory in school, you're a biology nerd or you're trying to impress a biology nerd.
To get the authentic-looking hardbound style, the Origin of Species Case wasn't put together in a Chinese factory by large machines. Instead, it's handmade by traditional English bookbinders, Manor Bindery. The plastic only appears inside with the actual holding frame -- the rest of the case is made from genuine bookmaking materials, like greyboard and wibalin.
The case measures 8.25 x 1.25 x 10 inches, with a frame designed to hold an iPad 2 (won't fit 1st gen -- sorry). Aside from working folio-style, it can also be used as a stand.
The Origin of Species Case is available from Uncommon Goods. Price is $70. They have other book designs there as well, including replicas of early covers from War and Peace, Pride and Prejudice, and The Theory of Relativity.
