Product Information

  • Overview

    Thin and light

    Designed exclusively for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display, BookBook is a totally unique case for the thinnest of MacBooks. Weighing as little as 13.5 ounces with an ultra-thin profile, this handmade, genuine leather case offers heavy-duty protection. Two hardback covers, reinforced corners, and a cushioned spine offer solid impact protection. The inside of the case is lined with a velvety soft, chocolate brown, padded interior for added protection.

    Protection from cover to cover

    To keep your MacBook safe, BookBook has two rigid hardback covers for impact protection. A tough spine and reinforced corners add another layer of defense. Inside the slim case, your Mac rests between two super soft, chocolate brown, padded cushions, which look amazing against the silver finish on MacBook.

    Details make this a best-seller

    BookBook is made with genuine leather and hand distressed so no two are exactly alike. Designer cornices on the top of the case add a visual cue to ensure you always open BookBook right-side up. Use BookBook as a traditional sleeve or use the two soft elastic bands to steady your Mac while you work with it resting inside the case. Dual zippers with leather pulls let you charge your MacBook while it's safely stored inside BookBook.

    Doubles as a stealthy mystery novel

    One of the distinctive features of BookBook is that it disguises your MacBook, making it look like a vintage book. Tucked safely inside BookBook, your Mac is kept out of sight, even while sitting in your dorm room, coffee shop, or anywhere else you take your Mac. Along with protecting your Mac from the rigor of the road, BookBook helps keep it out of the hands of thieves.

    I have been looking for a case/sleeve ever since I bought the MBA.
    I have seen & tried Incase & Hard Candy Case/Sleeves at Apple I have been looking for a case/sleeve ever since I bought the MBA.
    I have seen & tried Incase & Hard Candy Case/Sleeves at Apple store but did not like them much, but this one is the best ! Although it may be a little bulky for some people.
    Fits very well in my Laptop Briefcase and Backpack, also you can carry the case itself which looks cool .
    For me thumbs up ! Only complaint maybe the price !

    There was a very conscious decision to cut a corner on this product from Twelve South. It's clear, from the product that arrived There was a very conscious decision to cut a corner on this product from Twelve South. It's clear, from the product that arrived today, that this case wasn't designed for my 13" Macbook Pro Retina display. There's a good 3/4" hanging off the edge of my computer and the elastic bands BARELY touch the screen.

    It's apparent that this company didn't want to produce another product line specifically for the MBPR and found it much more convenient to utilize the same case for several different model lines.

    Twelve South obviously isn't a company committed to excellence.

    I'm keeping the case because it looks cool, but it sure as heck isn't worth the price that was paid. Buyer beware.

    I bought this along with my laptop later to find that it is not tall enough to fit the case. Very misleading. It's a nice case t I bought this along with my laptop later to find that it is not tall enough to fit the case. Very misleading. It's a nice case though.
