Speck iPhone 4 cases go literary

Speck and Out of Print have teamed up to create a set of iPhone 4 cases that have a literary slant.

'The Great Gatsby' and six other literary cases are available through Out of Print. Out of Print

I somehow doubt F. Scott Fitzgerald ever thought an image of the cover of his book would someday adorn the back of a portable phone. But now that iPhone case maker Speck has partnered with Out of Print, a New York accessories and apparel company that "celebrates the world's great stories through fashion," a "Great Gatsby" iPhone 4 case can now be yours.

Aside from Gatsby, Out of Print is serving up the "Catcher in the Rye," "A Clockwork Orange," "Moby-Dick," Edgar Allan Poe, "Lolita," and "To Kill a Mockingbird" soft-touch, fitted cases with fabric-wrapped backs that give the case "the comforting feel of an old book." Along with the iPhone 4 cases, Out of Print also sells some bookish e-reader jackets through a partnership with M-Edge.

The literary cases cost $35. For each item sold, Out of Print says it will donate one book to a school or community in need through its partner Books For Africa. Hopefully, Out of Print will add more choices (I'm looking for "Catch-22"), but that will probably depend upon how this first batch does.
