Twelve South’s newest case for the MacBook Air looks like something worthy wrapping your notebook in. The BookBook for MacBook Air, ($80 amazon for iPad or Macbook Air) an iteration of their vintage book-style case, is a genuine leather case hand-distressed to ensure that no two are alike. It weighs in at just thirteen ounces so it adds very little bulk to the Air. It’s hand-assembled and sports two hardback covers with extended corners and a rounded spine cushion. More juicy press shots and description below the fold.
The soft chocolate brown interior is padded while leather zipper pulls look like bookmarks. Another nice touch: the two designer cornices indicate which side of the case is the top. I also love how the case can work as a traditional sleeve and a productivity tool when the two interior soft elastic bands are slipped around the corners of your notebook. The BookBook for MacBook Air is available for both the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air for eighty bucks exclusively via the online Apple Store.
