Swiss iPad case

After all the serious concentration of working on my V&A entry, a bit of fun.

My friend Diccon Bewes is a writer who lives in Switzerland. He’s written a book called Swiss Watching about the meaning of Swissness, and stayed with me recently when he came over to attend the London Book Fair.

As he’d just acquired a new iPad, he commissioned me to make a felt case in the Swiss colours of a white cross on a red background. He also wanted a closing strap to prevent the iPad from falling out.

So here it is, Diccon – I hope you like it!

And no – this is not the start of a new line in iPad cases with national flag designs! Though some Union flag cases might go down well for the jubilee celebrations…

      The surveyor came today to assess what redecoration work needs doing. He reckons it will take at least another two weeks to dry out the ground floor. 😦
