First off, I don’t own an iPad, but I do plan on buying one once Apple releases the second revision of its popular tablet. When the iPad was first released, I pretty much wrote it off as just a giant iPhone but as time went on, the more i played with the iPad, the more i understood it as being much more. That however is a topic for another post in the future. This post is about the BookBook Case by Twelve South.
This is the latest in a string of “book” style cases for the iPad that have been coming out this year. The first of course was the popular DoDo Case which pretty much started it all. Soon after we saw a few other moleskin style cases pop up but the BookBook is a little different than those. The BookBook looks like those old leather bound books and the iPad is held in place with elastic straps. Unlike those other moleskin style cases though, the BookBook has a zipper that can be used to enclose the iPad within itself making it more secure. The BookBook is $69.99 and for a limited time, you can get free shipping on it.
BookBook for iPad is a handmade one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case that doubles as a fully adjustable stand. Along with its vintage looks, the super cool case makes iPad feel as if you’re holding a real book, and in many ways you are holding a book. BookBook for iPad forms a safe cocoon around your prized iPad. The hardback cover and spine provide impact protection, while the hard protective inner frame offers crush protection. As a bonus, the unique design of this case disguises iPad for an extra level of stealthy security.
BookBook for iPad is available in two styles: dark brown cover with black beneath ‘BookBook’ on the spine (Classic Black) and a more vibrant brown cover with red behind ‘BookBook’ on the spine (Vibrant Red).
Chapter 2: It’s also a stand.
One of the neat surprises with BookBook for iPad is the fact that this gorgeous case transforms into a fully-adjustable, hands-free stand. How so? By using the oldest trick in the book, a button and string. Inside the case you’ll see a button on the inside left cover. A string is connected to the opposite cover. To use BookBook for iPad as a stand, simply fold the two covers backwards to form a “V”, then stretch the string under the case and wrap it around the button. It’s a novel idea. By adjusting the length of the string with the button, you can adjust the stand as much as needed to find the perfect viewing angle for you. Then sit back and enjoy a movie, your favorite webisodes, an iPhoto slideshow or review tomorrow’s big Keynote presentation. Now you can see why this will be a bestseller.
Curl up with a good BookBook.
Reading books on iPad is pretty cool, but it’s not the same as holding a book in your hand. Well BookBook for iPad can fix that because this sweet little case is pretty much a book itself. Holding this case in your hands feels just like holding every book you’ve ever held. BookBook for iPad has a natural book feel that really enhances your iPad reading experience. Chilling in a chair, lying in bed or sitting on the train, wherever it is you like to read, BookBook will provide a more organic reading experience. If you want, you can even fold the left cover back against the right cover for a magazine or newspaper-like feel.
What’s inside the BookBook?
Unzip BookBook for iPad for the first time and you’ll find a super soft, rich dark chocolate lined interior. The dark brown lining serves two purposes. First it provides a soft cushiony, scratch-free surface for your iPad. Secondly, dark chocolate is a color that’s easy on your eyes and doesn’t distract you when looking at iPad. Your iPad is held in the case by two soft leather corners and a soft elastic band that runs across the top of iPad. This elastic band is perfectly positioned below the invisible sensors near the top of iPad and just above the iPad viewing window. You see the full screen, all functions will work and you have access to all controls and inputs on your iPad. You’ll also find a button and string stitched into the case, which are used to transform BookBook into a display stand.
No two are alike. End of story.
Just like our BookBook for MacBook Pro, each BookBook for iPad is a handcrafted work of art. No two are alike. From dual zippers with leather pulls, that at first glance look like bookmarks, to the sturdy reinforced hardback covers, BookBook for iPad is a vintage work of art built to protect the modern day iPad. Along with classic looks, BookBook was designed so you can use it as a protective case or as a convenient display stand. Those dual zippers give you the option to charge or connect headphones to your iPad while it safely sits inside BookBook. This puppy is designed to be fun and functional, cover to cover.
A story about protection.
Modeled after our case for MacBooks, BookBook for iPad is designed to keep your iPad safe and secure as you shuttle it from place to place. A soft, velvety interior keeps iPad snug, while hardback covers, a tough spine and a hard protective inner frame safely secure iPad and protect it from all angles. Reinforced corners lessen impact if BookBook is dropped. A cool looking rigid spine and strong inner frame offer reliable crush protection. Two solid, sweet looking hardback covers deliver impact security. Dual zippers seal the deal, while allowing to unzip just enough to sneak in the charging cord or a headphone cable. And finally, the design of the case protects you from looking like everyone else. Talk about a happy ending.
BookBook is the perfect iPad disguise.
One of the neatest features of BookBook for iPad is the stealthy security it delivers. Tucked inside BookBook, no one will ever see your iPad, even when it’s right under their nose. Sitting on a coffee table, dorm room or desk, BookBook for iPad looks like a vintage piece of literature, not a fancy iPad. It’s a great disguise and a simple way to reduce the risk of your iPad getting stolen.
