Etsy maker “punkassjim” came across a photo of an antique electrical handbook and got inspired. The bold title and fun aside notes seemed to describe the iPad 2 perfectly. So, he decided to recreate the look into a set of custom iPad 2 smart covers.
All of his wares are made by hand from leather sourced at a local factory store, making each one unique, with its own slight imperfections and character. Black, green, brown, chocolate, and blue color options are currently available, complete with a micro fiber lining, an auto-aligning magnetic hinge and embedded cover magnets to enable the same auto wake and sleep functionalities found on the official version. Since they don’t have foldable ridges, these covers won’t pull double duty as stands though. We love the juxtaposition of old meets new, and hope “punkassjim” decides to create others designs (or custom options) in the future.
