Based on the previous posts by Justy and peterbbb, I think I'll contact Bookeen to see if maybe there was a round of "faulty" deluxe covers that won't fold.
Mine wasn't sent immediately, as they were out of stock when I ordered the Cybook.

Or even better, I'll try and mention it during the conversation if somebody from Bookeen comes at the apero tomorrow

I'm interested in the outcome. But I strongly believe that the real leather covers can bend back and that the (cheaper) non leather black ones which come with the deluxe package (but aren't the deluxe covers) can't.

Let us know what you discover.

Hmm, my brown leather deluxe cover from bookeen didn't fold back very good at the beginning. But now, after a few weeks of use, it folds back quite nicely and without any creases.
Maybe the leather just needs some folding "practice"?

Ok, the apero brought me the solution :
the black deluxe cover can fold too !

You just have to push a little bit more and it will fold.
The folding happens closer to the back of the cover than for the regular folding, and it is possible that the front of the cover gets marked a bit, but it is far easier to read this way.
It folds flat, and the back does not meet up with the font.

I'll try and see if I can post some photos to demonstrate what I mean.

Yes !

And I would go even farther, by saying that I'm glad it took place for more than just discovering I could fold my Cybook cover !
