Electric Library Smart Cover for iPad 2

I’m really digging this handmade embossed iPad 2 smart cover from maker Jim Thorpe. What caught my eye was his faithful recreation of the venerable Audel’s New Electric Library cover painstakingly embossed in leather and hand assembled into a working smart cover using surplus parts liberated from cheap knockoffs. It may not do the fancy folding stand trick, but since it doesn’t have the same fold lines as the original, it won’t leave unsightly linear smudges on the screen, either.
