Cover to cover, this BookBook is like no other. 

  • Each Rutledge Edition is a distinct work of art. Every single premium leather Rutledge case has a slightly different finish, so no two are exactly alike.
  • Small details make a big difference. This Rutledge Edition has a tiny notch at the top of the inner frame. It’s there so you can swipe to access Notification Center on your iPad without the leather getting in your way.
  • It protects iPad Air and iPad mini in two ways. BookBook Rutledge has hardback covers, a rigid spine and padded interior to protect iPad. It also disguises your expensive iPad as a vintage book, keeping it out of sight. 


Peek behind the scenes at our Rutledge photo shoot. 
When it came to capturing the perfect images of this special case—named after famous Charlestonian John Rutledge, signer of The Declaration of Independence—we needed just the right set of eyes. We asked acclaimed photographer Sully Sullivan to spend the day with us in and around our beautiful hometown of Charleston, SC and here's how it all came together.

We re-wrote the Book on hand-crafted finished leather. 
How can we make every Rutledge different? We invented a new technique that allows us to apply multiple layers of color to leather, then carefully remove selected elements to reveal a radiant tapestry of hues and patterns. Each Rutledge cover reveals a slightly different finish, highlighting the natural grain of the leather itself. That’s how you get your own distinct case.
