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).

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.
