Just like MacBook, Twelve South's BookBook case is extra light and ultra-thin. This genuine leather design has rigid hardback covers with reinforced corners to protect MacBook from impacts, while 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.

Did you notice?BookBook cleverly disguises your MacBook, helping to keep it out of sight when not in use.

Seriou This case make me want to write a novel [with Scotch in-hand], and you how much engineers like to write documentation...
Seriously, very perfectly fitted - it adds just the right amount of protection that gives me confidence, but not too much as to compromise the slimness of the MacBook Air.
I generally like a technical clean look of a case, but this one brings a whole new dimension - it feels like a well worn wallet, the kind that just feels good when its in your hands. …

Best Case Ever
Wow... Have to hand it to the folks at Twelve South... this is the perfect case for the Air. The price does seem a tad high, but Wow... Have to hand it to the folks at Twelve South... this is the perfect case for the Air. The price does seem a tad high, but compared to the other offerings out there (all from like $40-60) it's really not so much more, and with free shipping, definitely worth it.
Only complaint is now my Mom wants one just for her papers and I'm concerned about the way she's eyeing mine... she's already proclaimed "it will be mine" someday. …

I bought this on my free gift card offer when I bought my new 11inch MBA. I didn't have enough to get a sleeve and a hardback case I bought this on my free gift card offer when I bought my new 11inch MBA. I didn't have enough to get a sleeve and a hardback case and the other reviews for the 11inch models hardback casings were below average. I also wanted something that I could have whilst waiting for my fin aid. Love the velvety interior, gives me confidence my outside is being protected. Not sure about the lightweight comments though because I feel like there is a bit of heft to the entire thing in my hands with the MBA inside. The leather feels real and it seems like it has quality behind it. …

I have owned and loved my 11" MacBook Air variant of the BookBook for almost 3 months now and it is FANTASTIC! It looks great, it I have owned and loved my 11" MacBook Air variant of the BookBook for almost 3 months now and it is FANTASTIC! It looks great, it smells of leather, and feels fantastic in the hand. I constantly get compliments and almost no one recognizes that it is anything other than a book.
It takes in the scratches and dings and soon looks older than it is. Of course, this is easily remedied with a little saddle soap, mink oil, or shoe polish. It helps blend the scuffs to an aged and cherished look. It also adds a little bit of water proofing and additional protection.
My only con on my BookBook is that the elastic retention straps have separated from the cover. It is still beautiful and serves as a functional sleeve for my MacBook Air but... it no longer has that satisfactory sensation of opening a book to reveal my MacBook.
All-in-all, this is a great product that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone who enjoys the look, feel, and smell of leather or that special bibliophile in your life. …

will this case fit a macbook pro 13"? it's not retina
- Asked by Lucia F from Apodaca
- Jan 23, 2014
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. …
