iPad case looks like vintage, old book


This is the new BookBook for iPad – a leather case styled to look like an old, classic book.  It’s made by TwelveSouth – who are rapidly becoming one of my favorite iPad accessory makers.  I love their BookArc iPad stand – which is an ever-present on my desk and which I reviewed a few months back.

Hit the break for a little more detail on the BookBook and one more photo …

Here’s more about the BookBook, straight from TwelveSouth:

Twelve South introduces BookBook for iPad, a new version of the popular BookBook Case for MacBook Pro. This new leather case is handmade to look like a vintage book. BookBook for iPad also doubles as a display stand for iPad. The case has two hardback book covers, a rigid spine and hard inner frame to protect iPad from all angles.

Not only does BookBook for iPad look like a real vintage book, it also feels like a real book, which enhances the iPad reading experience, making it feel more natural. Each case is hand-distressed, giving it a unique look. Hardback covers with reinforced corners offer solid protection from bumps and dings. The classic looking book spine and inner frame offer a superior level of crush protection. An additional layer of security comes from the fact that the antique book appearance disguises iPad from would-be thieves.

Inside BookBook is a button stitched into the left book cover and a string sewn into the right book cover. Those two simple items are used to transform the case into a handy display stand. The button and string create a stand that can be adjusted precisely to your desired viewing angle so you can sit back and enjoy a movie, videos or a slideshow, hands-free.

The BookBook goes for $69.99 and comes in these two color options: brown with a black spine (Black) and a more vibrant brown with a red spine (Red).

You can lean more or place an order at the TwelveSouth site:

I imagine we’ll be seeing these very soon in Apple stores.  I think the concept for this case is a great one, and it looks as if it’s another one that’s well executed by TwelveSouth.  I’ll definitely be looking to try one of these out.

  1. I make iPad covers, but I use real materials, not like that fake zippered bookbook which is just plastic sewn together, I actually make iPad books like this but I use real leather, and it really does look old, email me and I’ll send you some pics.

    1. Milton,
      Would you please send me some pics of the work that you do. I have been searching for a book like cover for my ipad 1. Thanks

      1. Milton, Do they cost a lot? I am very interested in finding one for my iPad 1st generation please email me.

    Please consider doing a cover for a 15 inch Mack book?
    It would be. Dream come true.
    Thank you for your time!
