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

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.

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.

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.

I love the New York Times Brooklyn Bridge cover. I purchased it for my Kindle Fire. It doesn't smell...and I'm sensitive to smells and especially inks. The cover fits the Kindle Fire perfectly. The cover didn't close all the way when I first put it on the Kindle. One day later, the cover lays flat. I like that you can flip the cover backward so you can have easier access to the Kindle's screen for playing games, maneuvering, etc. The cover's design is classy and chic. I love it! It looks great lying around; Looks like a nice book. The cover is of good quality and there's a pocket on the inside of the cover. The cover has suede-like material on the inside. I dislike velvety, suede-like textures, but this material is nice feeling...not irritating. I know that sounds weird, but certain textures drive my fingers/hands nuts. Also, the elastic corner holders hold the Kindle Fire securely, no wobbling. I love this cover. The price is great for what you get.

So yes it was a little tight to get the kindle in the binds, but not as difficult as some claim. I had doubts about the color of the cover, but it has a canvas like texture on the leather. Very nice It really improves the comfort while reading the device.
I will never use the internal pocket because I Think it might distort the cover shape. Also if you set it face down, the first week of use the lid will eventually lay flat. Overall this is a great product I'm from NY so I appreciate small tokens like this to show support for my city.

I've had this case for a year now and love it. I take my kindle everywhere with me and even though it doesn't have a strap or anything to keep it closed, I haven't had a problem with it falling open or scratching the screen.

The only complaint I have about it, is that I ordered the Brooklyn Bridge version and received the Liberty Face instead.

New York Times Cover for Kindle Fire, Liberty Face

I bought this case after I purchased the Fire, I originally didn't think I would have even needed one but then realized I better play it safe and protect the front screen.

The case build seems solid enough and does hold the Fire in place which is what it was designed to do.

Two dislikes that I have with it are;

1. When you fold over the front flap it doesnt line up with the back flap, I dont know why that is, its strange.

2. There is no front locking strap like the cases have for the Kindle Keyboard have on them.

Other than these two issues I like the case very much, it certainly draws attention to itself when your out and about in the coffee shops. I gave the case Three stars due to the two dislikes I have. I am though a little concerned about the two covers not lining up, not sure if this is a sign that the case will hold up or split in the future.
