saving old-fashioned bookbinding from extinction

I just ordered the Morris Lessmore DODOcase because 1) Keeping the original plastic packaging on my iPad to prevent it from getting scratched up was starting to feel a little silly, 2) My brother told me that his friend, a PhD in engineering, started this small local, sustainable business, and 3) I am just a sucker for old-fashioned bookbinding.

Electronic readers are convenient and they might, at least in theory, save trees, but they will never be as aesthetically pleasing as a well-worn, well-loved book with it’s own, distinct cover.
