    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.

    I saw a bookbook on amazon said that model is for both 13 air and pro, but I checked the 12south website and found out that size o I saw a bookbook on amazon said that model is for both 13 air and pro, but I checked the 12south website and found out that size on amazon it is only for 13 air (it is little too bigger for 13 pro because the bands will not stay on screen if using 13 pro). There is a model for 13 pro retina only on 12south website.

    Besides, the price on amazon is much higher than original (20 bucks for the one i saw and the others are even way much higher on Amz) and if order on 12south's website it may cause tax when it come to canada from usa.

    So I was waiting the apple store would come up the one for 13 retina pro only and finally, the store began selling this size on Aug13 and I ordered and got one day after.

    The size fits my pro perfectly (there is still some space upon screen and under palm area to ensure the book cover closed. When you close it the screen will move up and front to fill the space the opened book left)

    The bad thing is there are no bands on palm area, so i should be careful when i carry around. The designer says the reason why there are no bands is because they hope the customers to use bookbook more likely as a sleeve rather than a case and the bands near the screen just for few situations that people don't want move their laptop out of bookbook (what a nice reason to cheap out ). come on, don't let two little bands destroy its good design and quality. The zipper feel cheap, but i like its sound.
