Verso Prologue Tan Cover for Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Paperwhite
Verso Prologue Tan Cover for Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Paperwhite
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 Tan Cover for Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Paperwhite
  • Fits your lifestyle
  • Patented strap system
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Detail of texture
  • Easily folds back

The Prologue Tan 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Verso Cover for Kindle Touch February 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
This item is very nice. I have had friends confuse it for a leather-bound journal. I'm happy with the quality of the feel of the cover and the security of my kindle within it. I did have to set it "backwards" or face down on surfaces when I wasn't using it for the first week or so, as the front cover did not lay entirely flat. It would remain slightly opened, which was made worse initially if I read with it turned completely behind the kindle. It has pretty much cleared up, though, after storing face down for a week. I think that the more I use it and the flexibility increases, this should become a non-issue.

I was slightly annoyed by the packaging, however. It comes with inserts that contain magnets. This is very convenient to keep the cover closed if it were on display in a store. On the other hand, it was very misleading when I got excited that my cover would have a magnet that kept itself closed. There is no way to leave the inserts in and still secure the kindle at the same time; I tried. To be fair, the item description doesn't say anything to mislead one about a magnetic closure. I just couldn't help getting my hopes up when I initially opened my shipment and noticed the magnetic closure aspect.

All in all, I am extremely happy with the quality and functionality of the product and would still buy it again in a heartbeat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything I expected March 5, 2012
By Ben
I just got my first Kindle (Touch) and was looking for a cover that would protect it from being kept in my book bag or in a desk drawer. I read dozens of reviews on other leaver covers and was worried about getting the infamous smell that some covers have. In the end I chose this one because it is more than just a plain black cover. When it showed up it did have a slight smell, but it was more of a new car/leather smell than something disgusting and it disappeared within a week. When I put my Touch into the straps, it doesn't move around one bit. It is a very snug fit so I don't worry about it slipping out at all. The pouch to put my hand into is too tight for my big hand but there is plenty of material for me to hold it comfortably in one hand. The only downsides to this cover that I found is that if the cover is closed while your book is open the page changes so make sure to put it on the menu or ad screen before closing. Also, the cover doesn't close completely so it may open if jostled around in a backpack but I solved this by getting my own elastic strap to slip over it. I am very glad I purchased this product as opposed to a plain colored one. It makes me feel as if I'm reaching for an actual book instead of a Kindle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice material, solid, tight straps March 1, 2012
By Kat
Verified Purchase
I got this because I wanted something I could leave the Kindle in all the time---the naked Kindle terrified me and I didn't feel like I could even take it around the house for fear that my toddler might grab it or I might spill a cup of tea. This case is not waterproof, won't keep dust or toddler-snack-crumbs off it, and doesn't have anything to keep it closed, but it cleared up my irrational fear and looks beautiful.

Although there is no fastener, the case stays closed when just sitting out on a table---it doesn't pop open. The leather is lovely, as is the inside (suede?). My only qualm with the aesthetics is that the (presumably fake) gold leaf is not quite perfect. I'm okay with that---it makes it look more authentically like an old book.

Inside, the straps that actually hold the Kindle are really nice. They are tighter than the ones on my husband's Marware Jurni, and have some plasticky backing on the inside that keep them from slipping. They are perfectly placed to allow access to all the buttons.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feels icky April 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
I've had mine for about 2 months now and I have to agree with another reviewer, it feels plasticky and sticky when you hold it for a while. It does look handsome but it's not leather and you can feel it. It doesn't get a nice scuffed leather look from being carried around in my handbag either - rather the corners are becoming shiny and looking more like cheap vinyl. I plan to replace it with a leather cover as soon as I can afford another one. My Kindle Keyboard has the standard leather Amazon cover and that has a nice feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I wanted. April 27, 2012
By April
I bought this from another website a few months ago for my Kindle Touch. Same price as here.. perhaps it was more then or out of stock?

I wanted a cover to counter the technology inside and put a real book feel on it. This cover is exactly what I was looking for! I love the look - it really looks like an antique book or journal. The embossing and gold work is beautiful. I love the feel of it too - very soft/supple in my opinion with nice texture from the embossing. It fits my Kindle Touch perfectly - feels very secure and protected in the sturdy cover.

When I first got it, I was worried because the cover didn't lie flat. There was no mechanism to hold it closed so it remained slightly open. After minimal use (folding it back, etc.) it's no longer a problem and does lie flat.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quick tip about the magnet January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
As many have stated, the magnet in the packaging is slightly misleading about keeping the unit closed. BUT, if you disassemble the cardboard packaging and insert the magnet into the bottom front of the cover just below and to the left of the "verso" logo, then you get a DIY smart cover which will power off the unit when you close the cover, and power it on as soon as you open it.

The magnet is a _little_ too strong and as such the kindle will register it (turn off) if the cover is fully opened and folded back on itself. I just keep my finger in between the two halves if I fold it open completely.
