How This Startup Is Saving Book Binding From Extinction

For the iPad addict in your life, consider artisan-made tablet protection like the new DODOCase Metallics Collection ($85 each) for the iPad Air. Each cover is made painstakingly by hand, which we witnessed for ourselves when we paid a visit to the company's workshop in San Francisco.

Loud whirring and hammer smacking filled our ears as we entered DODOCase's factory. With its in-house screen printing studio and midcentury Kluge presses, the warehouse could be easily mistaken for a book bindery — and that's exactly what DODOCase intended.

The company's tablet and smartphone cases not only look like classic hardcovers, they're made with traditional book-binding techniques, too. In the video, find out how DODOCase's workshop is saving the art of book binding from extinction by crafting each and every one of its tech accessories by hand.
