A legendary vintage leather book-style case comes with Apple Pencil storage and is available for $69.99 on Amazon.
Are you looking for an iPad mini 5 case that looks and feels like a beautiful vintage book that’s just been taken from a library shelf? Look no more!
Twelve South has released (or we should rather say “published”) an iPad mini 5 version of their one-of-a-kind premium vintage case – BookBook. The case will turn your iPad mini into a small book of wisdom, especially that this compact iPad model has the size that’s closest to a regular size of a hardback book.
BookBook is one of the most stunning iPad cases you’ve ever seen – or were lucky to use. This case is handcrafted with care to make you feel as if you are holding a real book – while taking care of protecting your iPad against impact, scratches, and dust, thanks to two enhanced hardback covers and reinforced book spine.
Opposite to other book-style iPad cases, BookBook features a zipper disguised as page edges to give your iPad a 360-degree protection.
Just like versions for other iPad and iPad Pro models, the newest case features a built-in kickstand with two modes: horizontal for drawing sketches or writing blog posts, and vertical for watching movies or making presentations.
On the inside of a book spine, there is a holder to keep your Apple Pencil safe and avoid one of these “Where is my pen?” moments.
And finally, the look. Other producers try to imitate the case but that fail. BookBook is a piece of art. Each case is different. Crafted using traditional book-binding techniques, it’s finished by hand, so that it could look as close to an old leather book as possible.
An extra benefit of the BookBook case is that it disguises your iPad mini as a vintage book so well that it gives your device another level of security – thieves won’t target it.
BookBook for iPad mini 5 is available in two variants. Vintage Brown costs $69.99. Rutledge Edition (hand finished using a special 4-color process and wax polish) is available for $79.99.
