Verso - E-reader and Tablet Essentials

Verso Prologue Red Cover for Kindle Fire and Kindle Keyboard
Verso Prologue Red Cover for Kindle Fire and Kindle Keyboard
By LightWedge

It’s rare for a book to become a classic overnight. Just ask Henry David Thoreau. He only managed to publish two books during his lifetime, both of which were regarded as strange and weird. He even paid for the printing of one out of his own pocket, a 1,000-volume run of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. Fewer than 300 sold before his death.

Not until the 1920s did Thoreau earn his due, and today, it’s difficult to find a high school graduate that wasn’t required pick up his ode to natural living, Walden.

Like the literary palate of the reading public, the Verso Prologue e-reader might also require a short breaking-in period. But that’s because it’s hand constructed of super-durable, high-quality materials. Namely, animal-friendly “leather” on the outside. Don’t worry; you won’t miss the cow. You will quite pleased with the classy look, supple feel, and impressive durability of the Prologue. A hand distressed finish, carefully embossed embellishments, and antique foil stampings add sophistication.

On the inside, advanced microfiber engineered for maximum softness cradles your device when closed while patent-pending silicone-enhanced corner elastic straps hold it in place—a grip guaranteed for the lifetime of your device.

Verso Prologue Red Cover for Kindle Fire and Kindle Keyboard
  • Fits your lifestyle
  • Patented strap system
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Detail of texture
  • Easily folds back

The Prologue Red Cover is part of the Verso Prologue Collection

Wrap a throwback cover design around the latest in tech innovation? Cool. Like handcrafted bindings of old, Prologue covers feature details that tell a story: hand-distressed finishes, carefully embossed embellishments, and intricate foil stamping. Each Prologue cover is constructed by hand so each is a bit different. What's old is new again. The past is prologue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy and trim, does the job November 16, 2011
Color Name:Tan|Verified Purchase
This evening I just received both the Kindle Fire and, in the same box, the Verso Prologue Cover (Tan)--and am really happy with both! As other reviewers have said, the cover looks beautiful, and it feels nice, like glove leather. I wanted a classy-looking, lightweight, trim cover and this fits the bill perfectly. It makes the Kindle look just like an antique book when it's sitting on the table.

The elastic IS a bit snug as other reviewers have said, but I think that's a GOOD thing. For comparison, I have an older M-Edge cover for a Kindle 3 that has looser elastics to hold in the top corners, and while it's ultraeasy to get the Kindle 3 in and out of the M-Edge cover, on the other hand I've occasionally found that the top outer corner elastic has essentially slipped off. So, I'm thinking a tighter elastic for the Kindle Fire is good: less sagging right at the get-go, and I don't really want any "give" when I'm say holding the Kindle Fire while using the elliptical (anything to make that darned elliptical more interesting, right?)! At first just looking at the Kindle Fire vs. the cover elastics I didn't think the Kindle Fire would fit, but I gave it a try and it actually did. There appears to be some anti-slip thin rubbery backing to the elastics, which given my occasional scares with the other cover, seems to be a good idea even though it makes it a little harder to adjust the position of the elastics.

The Kindle really feels like it's secure in there, yet there was enough room for me to run my index finger under the elastic to straighten it out a little after putting the Kindle in (this might be more difficult if you have bigger fingers).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for my Kindle Fire November 16, 2011
Color Name:Tan|Verified Purchase
I got this cover a day before I got my Kindle Fire which I received this morning. I read the other reviews and got nervous. Well the cover looks like an old time classic leather bound book. I put my Kindle Fire in and it fits great. Evidently people expect it to be a perfect "snug" totally flat fit. Now I will use this primarily for reading, so the speakers are of a minor concern to me, so the strap covering the edge near the speakers are a non issue. I streamed Julia Child for fun as a test and used ear phones .... and even took the phones out and heard Julia just fine. I just set it on my nightstand face down and it does lie flat with the beautiful spine showing. I think this cover is totally classy and I love that it has no zippers, straps, snaps, buttons, velcro tabs or ties. It looks like a book and opens in the same simple way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire? November 15, 2011
Color Name:Tan|Verified Purchase
For the Verso Prologue Cover in Red: It has the feel of soft, lush leather -- although apparently it is not leather, but you could have fooled me. The problem I'm running into is, this is meant for the Kindle Fire? It just BARELY fits into the elastic straps at each corner. I forced it. I worry that the straps will loosen over time, but time will tell. And the cover doesn't lay completely flat when the "book" is closed. Maybe like leather, some use will cause the spine to accommodate and relax. It's a beautiful piece, though. I should return it, but I'm not going to, because it's that beautiful.

UPDATE: As others have pointed out, there is a backing to the elastic that really holds the Fire securely. That and the fact that it's a tight squeeze to get the Fire in place to begin with, I'm confident that the equipment is very secure. The elastics on top do cover some of the speaker outlet, but I don't notice a difference and when watching a movie or listening to music on a personal device, I use headphones anyway. Even alone.

This isn't the right cover if you plan to remove it often, however. For example, I removed the Kindle Keyboard from its case several times a week to put it into a dry sac for pool/bath times. That isn't happening here.

Although the elastics are properly flattened and not curled under in any way, the cover still doesn't lay entirely flat. I think the manufacturer would do well to add 1/4" to the spine. I don't regret the three-star review, but I am glad I decided to keep it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! Beautiful Design December 15, 2011
By Joy
Color Name:Red|Verified Purchase
I almost didn't buy this cover because of some of the reviews. I am so glad that I went with my gut instinct and bought it. It is everything I wanted in a Kindle Fire cover. First, and foremost, it absolutely fits the Kindle Fire. No gaps or loose straps or anything bad. It closes just like a book and when I put it on the shelf next to my antique leather bound books, it looks just like them.

I agonized for two weeks over which Kindle and which cover to purchase. I read almost every review. I did my research. But there was something so appealing about this cover. I like antique books, actually love them. I was so afraid after reading the negative reviews that I almost didn't buy it.

But, once it arrived and I slipped the Kindle Fire into it, I loved it. It felt like leather with suede on the inside, with even a little pocket to keep receipts, etc. The stitching was perfect and the design impeccable.

Oh, and best of all it fits perfectly into my purse. If you love a cover that looks like a real book and not an overpriced cloth notebook, you'll want this one.
