A lot of companies dedicate their time and resources to protecting our treasured gadgets, and while there are countless different types available, Twelve South offer something quite unique. The company’s BookBook cases not only protect your gadget from the everyday wear and tear, but also look distinctly like old books. Not only does this offer a vintage finesse rarely witnessed in this field, but it actually prevents would-be thieves from spotting your expensive device. Having released the BookBook for iPhone 5 a short while ago, Twelve South has come through with another for the iPad mini, and it looks just as good as the device itself!
Like all BookBook products before it, it’s composed of sumptuous real leather, and as well as protecting your miniature iPad from dust by means of a zip, it can also be used as a stand for when you’re at desktop level.
If you’re an avid e-reader, but somehow feel that by using a tablet, that magic of reading an actual book is somewhat lost, you can rediscover that warm feeling with the BookBook for iPad mini. It looks and feels like a real book, and anybody sitting opposite you on, say, the subway, would not be able to tell the difference.
It comes in the three different color configurations of Vintage Brown, Classic Black, or Vibrant Red, and ships for a very reasonable $69.99. Personally, I think the black one looks the nicest, and would suit the black iPad mini. However, since I’ve used the BookBook on many an occasion in the past for other Apple products, I can vouch that no matter which color you decide on, the BookBook will set you apart from the rest in terms of quality and aesthetics.
Each product is lovingly stitched together by hand, and with demand always high on the release of a new BookBook, you may want to get in quickly to avoid disappointment. At this time of year, cases and accessories for mobile devices tend to sell out, so if you want your beloved iPad mini wrapped in leathery, BookBook loveliness, please head over to Twelve South’s website by following this link.
We love the BookBook here at Redmond Pie, and have an extensive review of the BookBook for iPhone 5 coming up very soon, so stay tuned for that.
