Twelve South rewrites BookBook exclusively for MacBook Air.
Charleston, SC, May 25, 2011 – Twelve South has unveiled the latest chapter in BookBooks: BookBook for MacBook Air, a fresh, thin iteration of their popular vintage book-style case. The new version, designed exclusively for MacBook Air, is made of genuine leather and is hand-distressed to ensure that no two are alike. Weighing as little as 13 ounces, the new BookBook for Air case is a natural complement to the MacBook Air. Available now exclusively at Apple Store Online, the case retails for $79.99. More information and images can be found at twelvesouth.com.
BookBook for Air feels like an old, well-worn classic. The rounded spine feels especially comfortable when held, as if it’s a vintage novel you’ve carried around the world for years. Yet the old-tome appeal is offset by the fact that it adds very little weight or bulk to the MacBook Air.
Designed exclusively for MacBook Air, this lightweight case provides heavy-duty protection. Two hardback covers shield against impact, while extended corners and a padded spine cushion the MacBook Air in the event of a drop. A super soft, chocolate brown, padded interior keeps MacBook Air nestled in place when traveling.
BookBook for MacBook Air is made with genuine leather and hand assembled for a high quality finish. Leather zipper pulls are comfortable and made to look like bookmarks. The two designer cornices on the top of the case are not just for looks. They indicate which side of the case is the top so you always open BookBook right side up.
“MacBook Air is a very special machine and deserves a very special case,” said Andrew Green of Twelve South. “The BookBook for Air is designed specifically for MacBook Air. It’s compact, feather-light and the thin rounded spine feels great in your hand. BookBook for Air complements all the features you love about the MacBook Air.”
The case can be used as a traditional sleeve, or the two interior soft elastic bands can be slipped around the corners of MacBook Air to work with it inside the case. BookBook for MacBook Air is available for both the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air.
