thanks jay, I've seen these pictures. You see how 75% of the Sun is in the front, I'm interested in seeing how the back look with the cover cover close, just like this picture you posted but the back view. Since the picture is so disproportional, I'm eager to see a back view!

The front view shows where the fold is and what is on the front. Have you tried covering up that part on the opened-up view Jay posted? That should give you a good idea of what the back alone looks alike. Does that work for you?

I'm with you, Lilly. I wish Oberon would post more views on their website of the individual covers including the interior, backside with cover closed and the cover open facedown so we can see the entire cover. The picture posted in this thread if of the journal and the Kindle cover seems to look quite different.

I have about come to the conclusion that the color or design of my cover may not be that important... my cover is open 95% of the time because I am reading it... the only time it is closed is when it is in my purse so I don't ever really *see* the cover!!

I never thought of it like that way! :eek: But I think, I'll take my chances! ;D
The Sun is very cheerful to me, I know I would like it. :) I was torn between the Sun and Tree of Life and ordered Tree of Life yesterday. I had some sentimental reasons that helped me reach a decision. When I was a kid there was the most beautiful, hugh oak tree by my Grandfather's barn. I spent many an hour sitting in that tree with friends, by myself thinking. The tree is still there, my sister and her husband live in my grandparent's house now. When visiting I often walk down and sit in it, lots of happy memories for me in that old Oak. :)

You're right, of course. . . .a similar reason why I don't much care about personal screensavers: they're only showing when I'm not reading. But I admit to liking the happy little feeling I get when I pick up my closed Kindle with it's Oberon Cover and think "that's really nice." I admit it was a splurge. . . .but it made me happy. :)

Are you talking about different colors?  That would be cool!  But I think the way Oberon makes the covers is they choose a piece of leather and dye it the right color.  Then the sort of 'carve' out everything that doesn't look like a tree.  . .  or whatever.  So to have color you'd have to apply something after the carving which would be a different process.

Of course, I could be all wet. . . I'm not a leather worker. . . that's just how it seems from looking closely at my Oberon. . .

Probably explains the process somewhere on their web site. . . .

Oh you can get one, I'm sure. . . .the question is, can you get one for a price you're willing to pay?  :)

You probably don't troll craft fairs and such things (not being a female :) ) but if there is ever one in your area, go and check out the leather workers.  You might find someone who will do a custom cover for you. . . . . I've seen some very nice painted leather masks, belts and journal covers.  They could probably make a Kindle cover if you could give 'em some specs. . . .

that happy feeling was why I added a skin, and I really would like to have a purple cover of some kind... just may have to do with what I have for now since it is still working for me despite its color. :)
