The makers of the somewhat eccentric but inarguably gorgeous DODOcase for the iPad have just launched a similar case for the Kindle 3.

DODOcases are produced in the US, out of leather and handmade by artisans working in San Francisco. The trick here is to make the case look like a traditionally bound book, adding back a lot of the aesthetic pleasure of reading into the Kindle experience, while the interior is constructed out of bamboo for protective reasons.

The Kindle is kept secured by an elastic strap, just like with the Moleskine.
If you buy one, you’ll be waiting between two and three weeks, and the red model will run you $50, while other colors cost $55.
