I can understand wanting to make your Kindle appear to be a DTB.

Personally I just ordered an Oberon(Celtic Hounds) the leather will go nicely with my neck. :D

Linda:

glad to see someone appreciates my lame sense of humor :p


Back on the OP,  I think I saw a "false book" cover someone had made for themselves but I can't remember if it was here or back in the Darklands of Amazon.

I went back through several pages of the accessories thread to try to find the person who made one for her K1.  I went back through January posts because I'm pretty sure she posted it recently.  Sorry, I can't find the exact thread.

I saw the one your talking about with the Letters on it.  I think it was an Address book that they used to make the Kindle Cover and then used some wood I think with goldleaf on it.  It was a very cool cover.  I wish I was crafty enough  (and have the patience) to do something like that.

On the Mobileread forums, in accessories, by poster-Efleiss- he makes covers that look like real books. I don't know if he makes them for K2, but you might take a look!
