Twelve South BookBook for Air
We chuckled a little at Twelve South’s original version of BookBook—a MacBook case designed to look like an oversized, aged book—but every iteration gets a little better. Today’s just-announced BookBook for Air ($80) is the coolest one yet, sold in separate versions for the 11” and 13” MacBook Air. Each is made from padded genuine leather, and the 11” version is small enough to actually pass for a book. Or at least a “short story,” as the company puts it.
As with the earlier BookBooks, BookBook for Air actually has the look of an old hardcover, complete with bookmark edge-styled zippers. When it’s closed, it lets your MacBook Air sit incognito on a shelf; the dual zippers permit easy connection of a charging cable if you want to hint at the case’s contents. Fully opened, elastic loops let it attach to the Air’s lid.
