BookBook provides a novel cover for your MacBook

Ever wish your MacBook was a little more, well, bookish? If so, you’re in luck! The folks at Twelve South are putting the “book” in “MacBook” with the aptly named BookBook case. Designed exclusively for the 13-inch MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pro models, the concept of BookBook is pretty straightforward: provide a quality, protective case that looks just like a leather-bound, vintage book.

These hardback leather cases come in “Classic Black” or “Vibrant Red,” and protect your Mac in two important ways: the padded interior, rigid leather cover, and hard spine serve as protection against drops and crushing, while the outer appearance of a book serves as theft protection—unless you live in a town where book theft is prevalent.

Adding to the appeal of the BookBook is its hand craftsmanship and custom distressing, meaning that no two are exactly alike. Of course, such quality comes at a price, and the BookBook will set you back $80 should you spring for one.
