For the first time, the iconic vintage leather book cover from Twelve South is available for the non-Apple device – the 10th-generation Kindle Paperwhite.
Twelve South is the producer of innovative, premium-quality cases and accessories for Apple devices – iPads, iPhones, and Macs. BookBook is among the company’s most popular product lines, and, in fact, a brand in itself.
Imagine an iPad case cover that’s handmade with care to look like a vintage leather book that you can only find in a long-established library. Think of a spine that’s designed to mimic a classic leather-red-gold book design. Bring back from memories that great feeling of touching and holding a real book. That’s BookBook – a legendary book-style cover other case producers continuously try to mimic – and usually fail.
First BookBook was launched ten years ago, in summer 2010, and was designed to be a perfect companion of the 1st-generation iPad. Its innovative design combined with classic look won the hearts of thousands of Apple users across the world. BookBook was one of the most important factors to convince users to accept and embrace the iPad as a book-reading device.
Ten years have passed, and the BookBook is closer to book lovers than ever before. The legendary case is now available for the first device that doesn’t come with an Apple logo. And there is no better device to expand the BookBook line than Amazon’s popular Kindle Paperwhite!
In a press release announcing BookBook for Kindle Paperwhite, a co-founder of Twelve South, Andrew Green, says: “There are plenty of plain cases for Kindle – now customers can have a case for their Kindle as interesting as the stories inside.”
The BookBook tailored for the Paperwhite comes with all the iconic features you know well from iPad versions: genuine full-grain leather exterior with classic book design, hand-finished details and solid stitching, a zipper designed to disguise as yellowish pages of a closed book, a rigid spine that provides an extra protection.
Every BookBook case is unique as it’s designed to meet specific needs of users of different devices. A version for Kindle Paperwhite comes with a special kickstand that will let you read a book hands-free (perfect for long binge-reading sessions). You can adjust the angle thanks to built-in magnets hidden in the back cover. If you prefer not to use the built-in stand, you can fold the front cover back and hold the Kindle in one hand.
There are also the magnets integrated into the front cover. They are designed to wake your Kindle when opened and put to sleep when closed.
