Twelve South has created a one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed exclusively for the high-end MacBook Pro, offering an intriguing disguise and solid protection.
The BookBook case is available in Classic Black or Vibrant Red, in a way combining today's advanced technology with yesteryear's more simple pleasures. Who says technology killed books?
The BookBook case for the MacBook Pro is not only a cool disguise for the device, making it look like old book, but it also offers the necessary security to protect it. The hardback cover and spine are designed to provide sound protection from the hassle of the road. Meanwhile, the vintage book design gives no clue that a valuable MacBook Pro lies underneath. Unless there's a kleptomaniac bookworm nearby, the laptop should be safe in its cover. Lastly, the BookBook case should be every hipster's dream, adding a stylish vintage touch to the latest technology.
"One of the neatest features of BookBook is the stealthy security it delivers. No one will see your MacBook when it's tucked inside BookBook, even when it's right under their nose," reads Twelve South's product description for the MacBook Pro case. "Sitting on a coffee table, form room or desk, BookBook looks like a vintage piece of literature, not an expensive laptop. It's a great disguise and a simple way to reduce the risk of your MacBook getting stolen."
Truly One of a Kind
As Twelve South explains, each BookBook is created with "hand craftsmanship and distressing," which means that no two cases are exactly alike.
"From dual zippers with leather pulls, that at first glance look like bookmarks, to the sturdy reinforced hardback covers, BookBook is a vintage work of art built to protect modern day Macs. The classic case was designed to be used two ways. Use it as a traditional sleeve or use the elastic corner clips to hold your MacBook in place while you work with it in BookBook. Dual zippers allow you to charge your MacBook while it safely stays inside BookBook. This case is designed with good looks and smart functionality, cover to cover."
The BookBook case for the MacBook Pro costs between $79.99 and $99.99, depending on size. It is available for the 13-, 15-, and 17-inch versions of the MacBook Pro, and is available for order on Twelve South's Web site.
