TwelveSouth Re-Imagines BookBook For iPad To Be 33% Thinner And Way More Usable

TwelveSouth Re-Imagines BookBook For iPad To Be 33% Thinner And Way More Usable

They’re not for everyone, but if you like ensconcing your Apple devices in sumptuous leather bound hides as if they were dusty and mysterious tomes just pulled off an ancient library shelf, no one does it better than TwelveSouth with their BookBook series.

TwelveSouth has had a BookBook case for iPad for awhile, but they just gave it an overhaul, slimming it down by 33% and featuring an all-new interior frame that allows you to position the iPad at an angle for typing or watching movies.

The new BookBook for iPad is available now in brown, black and red and costs $80. We’ve got one, and we’ll be posting a review in the coming days.

    Hopefully they have re-imagined the zippers as well, because both of mine broke after a few days of use. They are extremely difficult to zip closed and the leather pulls break off.

    I’ve had my BookBook for 2 years and use it like crazy. Never had a problem. Love that thing and its iPhone companion (minus the hole I had to drill for the camera). If this thing is near as sweet as the other, I’m game.
