A library of BookBooks just for iPad.

Our BookBook for iPad family includes cases for iPad, iPad Air and iPad mini. Each BookBook is a handmade, one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed to protect and enhance your iPad experience. Protection comes in the form of two hardback book covers, reinforced corners and a rigid spine. Inside you’ll find a padded interior, along with a built-in display and typing stand. As a bonus, BookBook disguises iPad as an vintage book, adding a level of theft protection.

The real story is about protection.

BookBook for iPad is designed to keep your iPad safe and secure as you shuttle it from place to place. A soft, microfiber interior protects the iPad finish, while two hardback covers with reinforced corners provide impact protection. Dual zippers seal the deal, while allowing you to unzip just enough to connect the charging cord or a headphone cable without having to remove iPad from the safety of BookBook.

Two stands in one... BookBook.

When you first open BookBook, you’ll see the interior support frame that holds your iPad securely in place and showcases the beautiful display. Fold out the support frame and it forms a convenient display stand for FaceTime chats, movie watching or playing an iPhoto slideshow. Over 30 degrees of angle adjustment ensure you’ll find a perfect viewing angle.

Neatly tucked under the interior support frame lies a built-in typing stand. Flip up the support frame, fold out the typing stand and go to town on emails, Facebook updates or launch Pages and work on writing your novel from the comfort of a BookBook. 

The most anticipated BookBook of the year.  BookBook for iPad Air is here.

Our latest BookBook is hand-tailored exclusively to fit and protect iPad Air. BookBook for iPad Air has the same great features you’ve come to expect in this novel case, including a built-in display and typing stand, wrapped in a distressed leather exterior.

Curl up with a good BookBook.

Reading books on iPad is cool. Reading books on an iPad tucked into a BookBook for iPad is even cooler because it feels just like holding every old book you’ve ever held. BookBook for iPad has a dark colored, soft suede interior that doesn’t distract your eyes when viewing your iPad. That soft interior also keeps your iPad scratch-free. BookBook for iPad is a great way to enjoy a much more organic reading experience with iPad.

The perfect disguise for prying eyes.

One of the greatest features of BookBook for iPad is the stealthy security it delivers. Tucked inside BookBook, no one will ever see your iPad or iPad mini, even when it’s right under their nose. Sitting on a coffee table, a desk, or in a dorm room, BookBook for iPad looks like a vintage piece of literature, not an expensive iPad. We have received many letters from customers telling us that their homes or cars were broken into but the thieves left behind their iPads thinking they were just old books. BookBook is a great disguise and a simple way to reduce the risk of getting your iPad, and all of its valuable content, stolen.

Meet the whole family.

Our library of BookBooks covers iPhones, iPads and MacBooks. These beautiful, genuine leather cases look and feel like vintage books. Hardback covers protect your device and the unique design disguises your Mac, protecting it from theft. BookBook for iPhone doubles as a wallet.

BookBook FAQs

BookBook for iPad Visual User Guide (video)

What is the benefit to keeping my iPad in BookBook?

Chances are, a big part of your life - photos, music, work, school work and other important documents are stored on your iPad. It’s critical to protect it as best you can. BookBook is a hardback case with a leather spine that offers superior protection as you shuttle your iPad from place to place.

Will there be a Vibrant Red BookBook for Air?

No, BookBook for iPad Air is available only in Vintage Brown and Classic Black.

Is there an auto on/off magnet in the new BookBook for iPad?

No, a magnet was not incorporated into the new BookBook for iPad.

How is BookBook different from other cases?

Along with a totally unique look and solid protection, BookBook features a built-in display stand and a typing stand. You can use your iPad hands free for FaceTime chats and watching movies or videos. The built-in typing stand positions iPad at a comfortable angle for working on emails, documents or telling your Facebook friends how cool your new BookBook is.

What’s improved in the new BookBook for iPad?

In a word, everything. Volume 2 is lighter and thinner. And gone are the interior corner straps and elastic band. In their place is a soft interior frame that creates a typing stand and multi-angle display while holding iPad securely inside.

Why does BookBook for iPad have two zippers?

Dual zippers allow easy access to any port on iPad while keeping it zipped securely in BookBook. Position the zippers at the bottom of BookBook to charge and sync your iPad, or zip them to the top for easy access to the headphone jack.

How can I best care for the leather of my BookBook for iPad?

Although some customers do like to use products to clean or condition the leather, we don't actually 'recommend' it because we increasingly like our own BookBooks as they become more scratched and stained. We feel they look more authentically distressed and vintage, and become more 'individual'. It's like loving a much-used family antique more than something new and shiny.

Yes, BookBook for iPad is fully compatible with the recently released iPad with Retina display (4th gen).
