Verso - E-reader and Tablet Essentials

The New York Times Liberty Face
Verso Liberty Face E-Reader Cover for Kindle Fire
By LightWedge

The epitome of stone-faced stoic, Lady Liberty is still the looker after all these years. With a broken chain at her feet and the date of the Declaration of Independence inscribed in Roman numerals on her tablet, the icon of freedom has never been a more relevant reminder of what unites a land of such vastly diverse traditions.

“The surfaces should be broad and simple, defined by a bold and clear design, accentuated in the important places,” wrote Frédéric Bartholdi, designer of the Statue of Liberty, of his masterpiece. “…The model, like the design, should have a summarized character, such as one would give to a rapid sketch. Only it is necessary that this character should be the product of volition and study, and that the artist, concentrating his knowledge, should find the form and the line in its greatest simplicity.”

Indeed, liberty is a beautiful thing.

We gush equally poetic about the construction of the Liberty Face e-reader. Featuring an exclusive image of Lady Liberty from The New York Times photo archive, it has a durable Italian synthetic cover and an interior lined with advanced microfiber that provides maximum softness where it touches your e-reader. The silicone-enhanced corner elastic straps hold your device firmly in place and are guaranteed to maintain their tight grip for the lifetime of your device. The interior pocket keeps important documents or receipts while traveling.

The New York Times Liberty Face
  • Fits your lifestyle
  • Patented strap system
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Detail of texture
  • Easily folds back

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised December 9, 2011
Color:Brooklyn|Verified Purchase
After reading the previous reviews for this cover, I hesitated to purchase it and even cancelled my order once. After spending weeks searching for a cover that I truly liked, nothing appealed to me as much as this one, so I ordered it again despite the negative reviews. I am so glad I didn't let those reviews stop me. I absolutely love it! I was afraid it was going to be glossy and tacky, but it is not glossy at all and looks fantastic. As for the smell....if you hold it up to your nose, then yes, there is a chemical type smell, but I don't even notice it when I am using my Kindle Fire. I would have purchased this even if I had smelled it before I ordered it because the smell really isn't that bad. Go ahead and order this, I promise you will not be disappointed and it is well worth the $40.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cover, nice look November 18, 2011
Color:Liberty Face
Clean, slim profile with nice image quality on the cover. I have the Lady Liberty cover. If I had known there was a Brooklyn bridge cover at the time, I would have selected that instead. It is a somewhat tight fit for the Kindle Fire, but it fits. It is an attractive cover that gets the job done.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Vanishing Lady Liberty January 3, 2012
Color:Liberty Face
I think this cover is fine for the kindle fire. I don't like how the cover doesn't always stay shut, would have been nice if it had a strap or something to keep it close. After having it for only a week I'm noticing that the image of Lady Liberty is beginning to rub off. So I get black ink all over my hands and its making the cover look really dirty. It makes sense that this is a New York Times cover, they didn't want you to forget what it was like holding their newspaper and having the ink end up on your hands like the good old days.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this Kindle Fire case!!!!! December 1, 2011
Color:Liberty Face|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing case for my Kindle Fire!!! I REALLY wanted the Brooklyn Bridge case, but it was a 2-3 month wait. So, getting the Statue of Liberty case is just as good! :) It's a nice case - really protects the Fire from getting scratched. It's just the perfect case!
Thank you, Amazon!!!! You hit a home-run with the Kindle Fire AND the case :)

5.0 out of 5 stars really nice December 14, 2011
Color:Brooklyn|Verified Purchase
I've read the other reviews, and some of them confused me. To smell anything, I have to put the cover to my nose, and what I smell isn't very strong at all---it's hardly noticeable. Maybe the other reviewer got a fluke that was unfortunately over-laden with chemical--I don't know. And the tight fit---yes it's tight, but it does fit. Too tight---I disagree. Kindle Fire is an expensive device, and I think you should want the cover you buy for it to fit snugly to protect it properly. As for the design, I love it. These pictures from the Times archives are great. As for the price, weren't the original covers for last year's Kindle more expensive? If you want to buy something cheaper, that's your option. I happen to like these, and I don't mind the price. I think they're beautifully made, and there are times I don't mind paying for what I want. For my last Kindle I got the one with the Twin Towers and Liberty---I like that one, but I think this one of the Bklyn Bridge is even nicer.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! February 22, 2012
Color:Brooklyn|Verified Purchase
I just got my brooklyn bridge cover in the mail about a week ago, and i love it. It fits my kindle fire perfectly.
The little straps inside the case are a tight fit so i know my kidle wont slide around. I know some are saying the picture is rubbing off, but i use my kindle faithfully everyday and i have not had anything rub off yet. I couldnt be happier with this cover, Im glad i made this choice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR KIDNLE FIRE!! And as far as the cover not staying closed when you set it down, all I do it turn the design face down so the weight of the kindle is keeping it down, keeping it closed when you pick it up the next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is an eye-catcher January 12, 2012
Color:Brooklyn|Verified Purchase
Of course, being from NY, this cover for my Kindle Fire would catch my eye. It has a firm hold on the kindle and I feel like I am really holding a book. It is a romantic reminder of an easier time.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's as good as it looks February 3, 2012
Color:Brooklyn|Verified Purchase
As soon as I saw it I wanted to get it for my Kindle Fire, so ordered it last night with the 2 day prime shipping, and I got it this afternoon less than 24 hours later. The Brooklyn Bridge image is amazing and the overall construction of the cover is solid and quality made. I don't notice any strange smells from it so I honestly don't know what some of these other reviewers are talking about...but anyway overall great product, great buy, and I would definitely recommend it because I love mine.
