The bold geometric design of this science manual from 1955 caught my eye and I knew it would make a great case for a small- or medium-sized tablet. On the front, two black triangles meet in a mirrored design, touching at their apexes. On the sides, an orange and a grey triangle provide a strong visual contrast. In the top black triangle, a welder hunches over a flame, his iron mask aglow.
The book, which measures 5 1/2" (14.5 cm) x 8 1/2" (22 cm), was published by aluminum manufacturer Alcoa. Inside, 2 panels protect your device, which is held in place by black elastic. I covered the panels in stone-washed black denim. I added a pocket on the panel facing the device screen. The top of the pocket is diagonal to match the shapes on the front cover. A black elastic band keeps the case closed.
You can hold the case just like you'd hold a paperback book, with the front cover folded behind the back cover. Get the feel of a "real" book while reading a digital one.
Given its age, the book is in good shape. There is minor visible wear on the edges of the spine and bottom corners.
A perfect gift for the engineer in your life!
