Just like MacBook Air, BookBook is extra light and ultra-thin. This genuine leather case has rigid hardback covers with reinforced corners to protect MacBook Air from impacts, yet it weighs a mere 13.5 ounces. And its soft, chocolate brown, padded interior helps preserve the finish on your Mac.
You can use BookBook like a traditional sleeve. Or you can secure your MacBook in place with the elastic corner bands, so you're free to use it without removing BookBook. This unique case also provides an additional level of security by disguising your MacBook as a vintage novel.

It's a bit pricey but well-made. Both protective and aesthetically pleasing.

I bought the 13" BookBook for Macbook Air for my MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The problem was, it barely fits. On the case, th I bought the 13" BookBook for Macbook Air for my MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The problem was, it barely fits. On the case, there are these two black straps that go over the screen, with my 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display, those straps are always coming off which means the case doesn't stay on properly and it is so annoying!
I think it's an awesome case, it looks great. But sometimes, I'm concentrating on the straps of the case more than I am my work. I wouldn't buy it again. I also have a Macbook Pro (13") and that fits perfectly! Considering that the Macbook Pro fits so perfectly, and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display has a significantly smaller screen (and is thinner), it is really annoying how the reviews say "this case fits a MacBook Pro with Retina Display" because it doesn't...
IF YOU ARE GETTING OR HAVE A MACBOOK PRO WITH RETINA DISPLAY! Do not get this case! It's too annoying, there are better cases out there... TRUST ME! Don't get caught up in the excitement of a new case (that's what happened to me). Looks great, but not on MacBook Pro's with Retina Display. …

Perhaps it's the leather absorbing some of the heat? I've been using them since they came out (before they were even sold on the Apple website). I had some problems with devices back then but not since I've had the Bookbook. That said, Bookbook has made consistent improvements since its inception so I'll be purchasing yet another one next iPad. The craftsmanship is wonderful quality and a work of art. My oldest one is finally beginning to loose it's elasticity after many years. The outside is still awesome. I've taken it everywhere (only people who read books even notice & they just want to know what interesting old book I must be reading). It's given me a sense of safety for reading in public places. Worth all the pennies spent, in my opinion. …

Yes. The 13" and 15" Unibody MacBook Pros do fit in the 13" BookBook for MacBook Air and 15" Bookboo Yes. The 13" and 15" Unibody MacBook Pros do fit in the 13" BookBook for MacBook Air and 15" Bookbook for MacBook Pro Retina, respectively. It may be a little snug at first, but like a good leather shoe it will stretch and fit perfectly in a short amount of time.
That is a copy and paste from the twelve south website. …
