Twelve South’s newest case for the The BookBook for MacBook Air, ($80 amazon for iPad or Macbook Air) an iteration of their vintage book-style case, is a genuine leather case hand-distressed to ensure that no two are alike. It weighs in at just thirteen ounces so it adds very little bulk to the Air. It’s hand-assembled and sports two hardback covers with extended corners and a rounded spine cushion. More juicy press shots and description below the fold.looks like something worthy wrapping your notebook in.
The soft chocolate brown interior is padded while leather zipper pulls look like bookmarks. Another nice touch: the two designer cornices indicate which side of the case is the top. I also love how the case can work as a traditional sleeve and a productivity tool when the two interior soft elastic bands are slipped around the corners of your notebook. The BookBook for MacBook Air is available for both the 11– and 13-inch MacBook Air for eighty bucks exclusively via the online Store.
