My new Narnia-themed e-reader case!

Well, I've learnt the hard way that these sorts of things are extremely fragile, so cases are pretty helpful. XD I always like to design my own cases for things rather than buy something premade, usually because I want something so niche that it doesn't exist, lol. I made this on Caseable.com, which was the only site I could find which offers custom cases for many different e-readers such as the Kobo Glo HD, which is what I have. Anyway, I just thought I'd share it with you guys. I only had it made for myself, so no worries about copyright or anything. XD

On Caseable, it can be a bit difficult to really tell the exact placement of your images/text in relation to how it will print on the final product, and the interface is admittedly a bit clumsy/glitchy at times, but I knew I had to make it work if I wanted a custom case. I'm very pleased with it, even if it's not pixel-perfect with regards to the placement of the elements on the case--I'm not that picky! I omitted the quotation marks because I couldn't find any in the available fonts which weren't too distracting, lol.

Forgot to get a picture of it open and showing both front and back simultaneously, as it looks to an observer while I'm reading, but oh well, you get the idea. XD That's why I did the blue of Lucy's dress and the red of Tumnus' scarf for the two instances of "Narnia": you can see both sides when I'm reading.

I already got one of the kids in the classroom I work in to be interested in and start reading Narnia, haha! :P Not only that, but when I saw he had started reading LWW, I took it upon myself to explain publication vs. chronological order and write down the former for him to be sure he reads them "properly", LOL.

Wow, that's so neat, Phelan! I love the way it turned out. And you had a good idea about drawing inspiration from Lucy's dress and Tumnas's scarf for the font colors; it looks really nice. Now I'm nspired to dream up something Narnia-themed for my old Nook eReader. ;))

Very awesome to hear that it's already inspired a child to read CoN! And in chronological order, no less! You're truly doing Aslan's work. ;)

Oh what a lovely idea. I don't need a cover for mine yet, but I will come back to your thread when I do!
