Rutledge-BookBook

TwelveSouth, the company behind the popular BookBook series of cases for Apple devices that we’ve reviewed several times in the past, today announced a brand new option for MacBook users. The new “Rutledge BookBook” for MacBook is the first new product in the BookBook lineup in almost three years and the company says it’s also its most unique yet.

While the overall look of the case is much the same as BookBooks that came before it, TwelveSouth says the Rutledge case features a new process of finishing the leather by hand that makes it look even more like an authentic old book. It also makes every Rutledge BookBook unique:

Each Rutledge is a story in itself. Searching for something completely different, Twelve South developed an entirely new technique for finishing leather. This innovative process involves applying multiple layers of color, and then carefully removing selected elements by hand to reveal a brilliant tapestry of hues and patterns. Like a fingerprint, the resulting tones and patterns are completely unique to the natural variations of the leather itself. Looking for a plain, basic case to blend in? This case is not for you.

The company has the new case available for all models of MacBook including a model especially for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. The Rutledge BookBook is available now for $99 from TwelveSouth’s website. More images in the gallery below shows how each Rutledge has a unique finish:
