Twelve South launches faux-book case for iPad

updated 09:40 pm EDT, Mon August 16, 2010

Case looks like vintage book, doubles as stand

Twelve South has launched a faux book case for iPads, BookBook. When closed, the case is designed to disguise the iPad to look like a vintage book, with hardback covers and a rigid spine on the left side of the case. The case is hand stitched and distressed for an aged look, while a hard frame helps to protect the iPad. A string sewn into the inner cover can be attached to a button on the opposite side and used as a stand.

The case zips closed and has a scratch-free inner lining -- the iPad is held in place by two soft leather corners and an elastic band. BookBook allows access to all ports, with dual zippers enabling separate access to the headphone and dock connections.

The new case comes in black or red trim, each priced at $70 with free shipping for a limited time.

    This is perfect for those flight attendants who tell you to put every damn thing in the overhead bin

    Why so thick?

    Great idea but 1" thick??? Seems to add a bit too much bulk.

    I've never had a flight attendant tell me that. In fact, I never use the overhead bins.
