Electric Library: Custom iPad Smart Cover
I stumbled upon this excellent old electrical text — courtesy of Grant Hutchinson ( instagr.am/p/D1eDs/ ) — the embossed cover for which would make a great (and apropos) Smart Cover for the ol' iPad 2.

So the plan is to re-draw the artwork as vector lineart in Adobe Illustrator; print it out and use acetone to transfer it onto a woodblock (or wood-backed linoleum); carve out the design and use the woodblock as an embossing plate to press the design into a leather sheet; build that sheet into a custom Smart Cover :-)

So, yeah. Long-term art project. And yes I am a nerd.
