The Vintage Covers shop at Etsy converts old books and comic books into covers for ebook readers and even iPads (depending on the size of the book). Randy at Vintage Covers says he converts old hardcover books or he uses traditional bookbinding methods to construct a cover for an original image from a comic book cover or the like. He coats the cover with an acid-free coating to help protect it. Once you find a cover you like, you simply let Randy know what device you have, and he’ll rivet in 4 elastic straps to hold your device in the cover. Prices vary, depending on the size and particular materials. The covers he has available now range from $22.50 for a Cat in the Hat cover to $50 for some with vintage Playboy covers or a vintage comic book cover.
