Take notes, sketch a masterpiece or type up a keynote.

Unzip BookBook for iPad and iPad Pro, lift the built-in kickstand and your beautiful iPad screen is now angled to let your wrist do its best work. BookBook turns your iPad into an easel for drawing a masterpiece, taking notes during a lecture, fine tuning architectural plans or sketching out ideas for your next DIY project. When your wrist is ready for a break, fold down the kickstand, stow your Apple Pencil inside the spine pocket (on Pro and 2018 models), pull the dual zippers closed and your work is safe and sound inside BookBook.

A beautiful story about protection. 

Each BookBook for iPad is brought to life with hand craftsmanship and distressing, ensuring no two are exactly alike. From dual zippers with leather pulls that, at first glance, look like bookmarks, to its beautiful distressed leather covers, BookBook is a vintage work of art just for your iPad. Inside, a soft, microfiber interior protects the iPad finish, while the two hardback covers and reinforced spine provide impact protection. As an extra measure of security, BookBook disguises your iPad as a vintage book.

Show your work anywhere.

When you put the finishing touches on your project, showcase it in style with BookBook. Unsnap the leather glove cradling your iPad Pro, fold the soft hinge over and you’re now in display mode. Adjust the angle of iPad to fight glare and find the perfect viewing angle of the huge Retina display. Need some inspiration of your own? Pop open iTunes or Netflix and watch amazing work produced by one of your favorite artists.

BookBook FAQs

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. 

Can I carry my Apple Pencil in BookBook for iPad?

Yes - on some of the models. Any of our BookBooks that were designed for iPad Pro will feature a sleeve in the spine to perfectly hold your Apple Pencil - this includes the new 2018 iPad BookBook. Any BookBook designed for an iPad that doesn't support Apple Pencil will not have this feature (Air 1/2, mini 1-4, and iPad 2017). 

Will my Apple Smart keyboard fit in BookBook for iPad Pro?

The BookBook for iPad Pro 12.9-inch is designed so that your device is inserted into a perfectly sized interior sleeve. Once this is done, there is a leather surround on the edges of iPad Pro which means that the Apple Smart keyboard will not be able to attach. The BookBook does provide a built-in kickstand which provides the perfect angle for on-screen typing and sketching. If you prefer to keep your keyboard attached, we suggest using our BookBook for MacBook (13-inch Retina) which has space to hold both the iPad Pro with the keyboard intact, while still providing the overall protection you expect. 

Will my iPad with a shell fit in BookBook?

No.  All of our BookBooks for iPad feature an interior leather sleeve that will hold your iPad or iPad Pro securely inside. Unfortuantely since these are measured specifically for each model, there isn't additional room for shells or cases. But don't worry! When your iPad is stored in a BookBook you have all the protection you need with two hardback covers and a reinforced spine for impact protection and a soft, microfiber interior to protect the screen and finish. 

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.
