BookBook: Wrap Your iPad In Hardback Leather

Of all the cases and stands we talk about every week, the BookBook for iPad has to be one of the best we’ve ever seen. Produced by Twelvesouth, well known makers of awesome Apple accessories, the BookBook turns your iPad into an elegantly bounded leather book. It even works as a stand thanks to an internal mechanism based on a strip and a button. It’s old style.

“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.”

$70 with free shipping for a limited time. At least you can say you did something to save books. Sort of.
