We are featuring the Limited Edition ‘British Library’ Bagabook book cover/carrier, because it was interesting to learn that sales of the product go to support the work of The British Library.
The British Library serves business and industry, researchers, academics and students, in the UK and world-wide. It is in two UK locations: at St Pancras and Boston Spa. Among the old and new treasures housed there, the paper collections and bounded books, The British Library www.bl.uk also has, in its safe keeping, 4.5 million maps!
The four hemisphere map that features on this Bagabook version was published in 1668. It was created by Frederik de Wit; a once renowned cartographer from Amsterdam. The picturesque four corner borders are decorated with scenes from the famous, ancient Greek poem entitled The Iliad.
The item, like all the Executives, measures: 22cm Wide x 17.5cm Height x (up to) 5.5 cm Depth. It has a short carry handle, magnetic closure, and a zip fastening back pocket. The inside has an inner support to fit a variety of books up to and including A5, there is a travel card pocket and a pen holder too. A bookmark is also attached. The item is presented in a transparent fronted cardboard box which has the British Library Logo; altogether it makes for a very unusual gift.
Bagabook has many styles of e-reader cases and iPad covers available, but Bagabook creator, Susan Doha is primarily a huge supporter of ‘the book’ and stationery and filing organisation that is traditional in format, so the connection she has established with The British Library will be hugely important to her.
TSS first featured an A5 Bagabook Executive Book Carrier in June 2013 and now Bagabook have new styles of Executive book cover/carriers including a Palena version for children. New iPad and iPad mini pouches also form part of the range. All Bagabook products are designed for functionality, either to help with organisation, to help keep devices protected, or to keep an individuals’ reading matter (books up to A5 size) from public view, and from getting damaged during transit and travelling. Bagabook items are designed in the UK.
A range of scarves and tote bags accessories are also available in the same new designs namely Liquorice, Candy Stripe and Bouquet, made of durable canvas material.
