Product Highlights
  • Fits MacBook Pro 15" Notebook
  • Hardback Leather Spine
  • Micro-suede Soft Interior
  • Three Levels of Security
  • Dual Zippers with Leather Pulls

The Twelve South BookBook Case (Vibrant Red) is a hardback leather case designed to fit an Apple MacBook Pro 15" notebook computer. It has 3 levels of security; first, its hardback sides with reinforced corners that protect the computer from impacts encountered on the daily commute. Second, the vintage designed spine provides crush protection. Third, it disguises the MacBook from being seen. Safely stowed inside, the MacBook looks like a vintage book left on a desk or table, reducing the odds of someone stealing it. It has a micro-suede soft, padded interior and 2 tough, rigid reinforced leather hardback covers for impact absorbing protection.

The BookBook case is made with hand craftsmanship and distressing, ensuring no two are exactly alike. It also has dual zippers with leather pulls, that at first glance look like bookmarks. It is designed to be used as a traditional sleeve or to work while connected via elastic corner clips.

      OK, I think the BookBook looks great. Plus, my wife is a book artist, so I am biased towards its looks. It fits my Mac nicely. It does not have pockets for peripherals, but most sleeves do not either. What concerns me is whether the zipper will last. It is fine now, and I will be careful, but that appears to be the limiting factor for durability. So if you need to pull out and put away your Macbook often and quickly, this may not be ideal.

        Comments about BookBook Case (Classic Black):

        The reason i gave it 4 stars [there is no option for 4 1/2 ] is simply because:
        a] the mbp becomes quite big once its in the case, and therefore doesn't fit anymore in many carrier-bags.
        b] there is a problem "turning" the corners with the zipper. It gets better over time, but someone not aware of it might force it the first time causing the zipper to tear/brake.
        overall it is really a nice case and i really dont care if it gets bumped and scratched: the look just gets better and more authentic!

            Comments about BookBook Case (Classic Black):

            This is a great case for any 15" MacBook Pro, however, it is a bit large for the non-unibody Macs, but still works, and would probably be perfect for the unibodies. It's very attractive and makes my computer look great, as well as protects my computer very well. The 15" looks huge, but it's just the right size for the computer. The whole "criminal-fooling" factor might not come into play here, though. For the 13", I'm sure it would be more believable. The photos are very true to the product, so feel confident when ordering that what you see is what you will get, despite their unique "hand-distressed" look. Overall, I recommend the BookBook (which I think is a silly name) completely. It's great: it looks great, it feels great, it protects well, and it's well worth the money if thats what you're looking for.

                  I can't go anywhere without at least 5 people commenting how amazing this case looks, yet I can leave it on my table or in my car and nobody takes a guess that it's anything other than a book. AMAZINGLY DURABLE construction, beautiful design, and easily accessible for charging while closed. In my opinion, this is the best case money can buy. It's especially fun to walk into an Apple store and have the employes even drool over it. If you're reading this and considering this purchase, STOP THINKING AND JUST BUY IT!!! You'll thank yourself when it comes in the mail.

                      I bought this for my girlfriend after catching a glimpse of it in Wired magazine. She loves the style of old worn books and I know this will be perfect.

                      Th case itself is of fine quality and should serve as a suitable case unless you are planning together really rugged. But it'll be perfect for day to day use.

                      If you want to give yours a special touch, get some heat transfer sheets for dark T-shirts and print out some fancy initials and iron them on the front. Makes it look more like a book and gives it a personalized feel.
