Protection from cover to cover.
To keep your MacBook safe, BookBook has two rigid, hardback covers for impact protection. A tough spine and reinforced corners add another layer of defense. Inside the slim case, your Mac rests between two super soft, chocolate brown, padded cushions, which look amazing against the silver finish on MacBook.
Doubles as a stealthy mystery novel.
One of the coolest features of BookBook is the fact that it disguises your MacBook, making it look like a vintage book. Tucked safely inside BookBook, your Mac is kept out of sight, even while sitting in your dorm room, coffee shop or anywhere else you take your Mac. Along with protecting your Mac from the rigor of the road, BookBook helps keep it out of the hands of thieves.
Details make this a best-seller.
BookBook is made with genuine leather and hand distressed so no two are exactly alike. Designer cornices on the top of the case add a visual cue to ensure you always open BookBook right-side up. Use BookBook as a traditional sleeve or use the two soft elastic bands to steady your Mac while you work with it resting inside the case. Dual zippers, with leather pulls, let you charge your MacBook while it’s safely stored inside BookBook.
Made just for your ultra-thin MacBook.
When it comes to MacBook sleeves and cases, one size does not fit all. BookBook is hand tailored to fit the thin profile of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display. With BookBook, carrying the thinnest MacBooks becomes a lot more fun and comfortable.
