Carry Your Kindle by Busted Typewriter

It seems seasonal to use this site to highlight some of the amazing Christmas gifts that can be found through the independent creative community. So for the next 10 days I want to highlight one person operating outside the mainstream whose talent deserves to be spotted. Busted Typewriter is a fantastic site consisting of a number of different indie projects, all the brainchild of one man – from complete da tweet to the jetsettr refurbished luggage range.

There is a wonderful steampunk feel to everything Busted Typewriter does, but the simple superness of the “book as a Kindle carrier” is what seems like the perfect present for those who love their books in the old form or the new. Available through Busted Typewriter’s Etsy. Prices around $25.
