Twelve South’s latest BookBook case makes the 2021 MacBook Pro look like a leather-bound book. The unique case manages to simultaneously make your macOS laptop stand out from the crowd and blend into the background.

There are versions for both the latest 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. BookBook is also available for iPad and iPhone.

Make your MacBook Pro look like a real book with BookBook

“BookBook is the iconic MacBook case that makes a statement wherever it goes,” says Twelve South.

Zip your MacBook Pro into the case and it looks like something Pitt the Elder would have carried around. Each case is handmade and individually weathered.

Open the BookBook and the laptop is ready to use without needing to remove the case. Twelve South created a suspension system that holds BookBook’s top cover upright.

The case has a crush-resistant spine, plus a hidden portfolio pocket for holding important papers.

The case really does make the Apple laptop look like a book… something thieves are less likely to steal.

“We hear endless stories of homes and cars being ransacked and robbed, but MacBooks hidden in BookBooks were left untouched. Instead of buying a case that makes your MacBook a target, disguise it with a BookBook,” says Twelve South.

Unzip the case to reveal the MacBook Pro and surprise the people around you.

The Twelve South BookBook for the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro released in 2021 launched June 28. It sells for $79.99.

The case is also available for the 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, as well as the 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019-2020).
