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 a vintage book, adding a level of theft protection.

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 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, 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.
Rutledge Edition re-writes the book on finishing leather.
The Rutledge Edition of BookBook is the not only distinctive but has a story of its own to tell. To create this finish, we developed an entirely new technique that applies multiple layers of color and then carefully removes selected elements – revealing a radiant tapestry of hues and patterns. Because of the hand finishing each cover reveals a slightly different finish, all of which follow the brilliant tones and natural grain of the leather itself. The final product is a unique and distinctive look you won’t see on any other case or sleeve on the market. Rutledge is a showstopper and conversation starter guaranteed to set you apart.
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.

- What is the difference between Classic Brown and Rutledge Edition?
The fit, function, and protection of the Classic Brown and Rutledge BookBooks are the same. The main difference between the two is the finishing treatment. The leather on the Rutledge BookBook is hand-compressed during the manufacturing process, giving it a thinner feel and a shinier, harder finish which is more resistant to scratching. Additionally, the covers of the Rutledge BookBook have multiple hand-applied and hand-rubbed layers of dye, giving each one a unique, golden-red center which gradually darkens out toward the edges. If you are looking for a softer, more traditional leather finish then the Classic Brown version is the case for you. This leather case will naturally patina over time giving it a vintage look and feel.

- What is the benefit to keeping my iPad in BookBook?

- Is there an auto on/off magnet in 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.
- 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.
- Do I have to take my iPad out of BookBook to take a picture?
No. Simply unzip the case, lift the iPad out by the interior frame, and snap your picture.
