The BookBook for iPad family includes cases for iPad, iPad Air and iPad mini. Each BookBook is a handmade, one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed to protect and enhance your iPad experience. Protection comes in the form of two hardback book covers, reinforced corners and a rigid spine. Inside you’ll find a padded interior, along with a built-in display and typing stand. As a bonus, BookBook disguises iPad as a vintage book, adding a level of theft protection.

The real story is about protection.

BookBook for iPad is designed to keep your iPad safe and secure as you shuttle it from place to place. A soft, microfiber interior protects the iPad finish, while two hardback covers with reinforced corners provide impact protection. Dual zippers seal the deal, while allowing you to unzip just enough to connect the charging cord or a headphone cable without having to remove iPad from the safety of BookBook.

Two stands in one... BookBook.

When you first open BookBook, you’ll see the interior support frame that holds your iPad securely in place and showcases the beautiful display. Fold out the support frame and it forms a convenient display stand for FaceTime chats, movie watching or playing an iPhoto slideshow. Over 30 degrees of angle adjustment ensure you’ll find a perfect viewing angle.

Neatly tucked under the interior support frame lies a built-in typing stand. Flip up the support frame, fold out the typing stand and go to town on emails, Facebook updates or launch Pages and work on writing your novel from the comfort of a BookBook.

Curl up with a good BookBook.

Reading books on iPad is cool. Reading books on an iPad tucked into a BookBook for iPad is even cooler because it feels just like holding every old book you’ve ever held. BookBook for iPad has a dark colored, soft suede interior that doesn’t distract your eyes when viewing your iPad. That soft interior also keeps your iPad scratch-free. BookBook for iPad is a great way to enjoy a much more organic reading experience with iPad.


The perfect disguise for prying eyes.

One of the greatest features of BookBook for iPad is the stealthy security it delivers. Tucked inside BookBook, no one will ever see your iPad or iPad mini, even when it’s right under their nose. Sitting on a coffee table, a desk, or in a dorm room, BookBook for iPad looks like a vintage piece of literature, not an expensive iPad. We have received many letters from customers telling us that their homes or cars were broken into but the thieves left behind their iPads thinking they were just old books. BookBook is a great disguise and a simple way to reduce the risk of getting your iPad and all of its valuable content stolen.
