The BookBook Hardback Leather Case For MacBook Pro 17" from Twelve South disguises your MacBook as a hardcover novel to keep it away from prying eyes. The case features a rigid design with a padded interior to keep your MacBook safe during travel. Thanks to the case's double zipper design, you can use your laptop in its case.

Hardback Cover Softens The Blows

Protecting your MacBook is a top priority and it's job one for BookBook. Slip your Mac inside the velvety soft, padded interior. Zip it closed and your baby is nestled between two tough, rigid leather hardback covers for a solid level of impact absorbing protection. The rigid spine serves as crush protection for an additional line of defense. BookBook creates a hardback book structure that safeguards your MacBook like few other cases can. Far better than any floppy neoprene bag ever will. End of story

The Real Story: No Two Are Alike

Each BookBook is brought to life with hand craftsmanship and distressing, ensuring no two 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 Perfect Disguise

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. Sitting on a coffee table, dorm 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

        Comments about Twelve South BookBook Hardback Leather Case For MacBook Pro 17":

        This case has protected my laptop so well and made it look super stylish. It's ideal for keeping your laptop from ruining its hard drive and other components because the book-like borders give it a ton of shock resistence. It also has protected it well from any type of scratches to the aluminium casing. The more beat up my case becomes the more retro and stylish it looks. [$] bucks well spent! My only complaints are that when you fit the laptop into it, slowly it begins to slide out. It "attaches" by tucking the top corners of your screen under elestic bands. As I type or move, the keyboard side of my laptop slides out of the case. This was fixed by putting a flat peice of rubber under my laptop, on top of the case interior. Alternativly (and what I eventually did to solve this problem) I instead decided to flip my case around so the bands hold on to my keyboard side, but this causes the top of the case to flop around. By putting a string through the tag on the inseam of the case (it says BookBook on it) and taping the string to the inside of my speck plastic cover I was able to fix this problem and still close my laptop and case freely.
