In my first passport photo I’m missing my two front teeth and in my second I have braces. My third boasts stamps from Africa and Asia. But my latest passport contains one of my most important pieces of paper–my visa allowing me to live in Switzerland. This little book is easily one of my most precious possessions.
Living abroad has helped me understand how valuable an American passport is–we truly have the ability to travel to almost any country, no questions asked. I don’t take that for granted and since my passport has been getting a lot of use lately I’ve been looking for a cover.
Like this fun French one in black:
Or a brightly-colored modern cover:
This one would be perfect for honeymooners:
A classic no-nonsense cover:
A sophisticated cover in calf hair:
A sweet, retro cover:
A high-end British cover (that comes in nearly every color imaginable):
My dream cover–personalized in my favorite colors (le sigh):
