The new briefcase for iPad.

BookBook Travel Journal looks like a vintage book, but it’s really a dapper, hardback leather case designed to hold your iPad and the essential accessories that go with it. Inside you’ll find a collection of pockets and adjustable bands that neatly organize and protect items like your power adapter, cables, USB drives, stylus, mouse, earbuds or high-end headphones. Say bye-bye to your backpack. Everything you need for the road fits inside BookBook Travel Journal.

Are you iPad only?

This BookBook may be all that you need.

If you replaced your laptop with an iPad, you can now jettison your oversized backpack or briefcase as well. BookBook Travel Journal has just the right amount of room for your iPad, power adapter, cables and your Twelve South Compass. No more fishing through a cavernous backpack trying to find your stylus or earbuds. BookBook Travel Journal keeps your iPad accessories tidy and within reach. The soft, lined iPad compartment holds almost any iPad (iPad Pro 12.9-inch is the exception), with or without a Smart Cover or shell attached.

A BookBook about organization.

BookBook Travel Journal perfectly indexes your indispensable iPad accessories against a soft tweed, leather-accented interior. There’s just enough customization to accommodate your personal medley of gear. Board your flight, stroll into class or pull up a chair in a conference room and slide open the convenient dual zippers on BookBook to find your iPad and accessories ready and waiting. When the biggest device you have is an iPad, why carry anything more than BookBook Travel Journal?

MacBook’s perfect travel companion.

MacBook users will find this high quality leather case is sized just right to hold your power adapter, extended power cable, travel mouse, extra batteries, jump drives or even a Twelve South PlugBug World. Like the contents of a book, all of these accessories are neatly organized using a series of pockets, elastic and adjustable bands. It’s like a travel toolbox for MacBook accessories.


A BookBook with style and substance.

BookBook Travel Journal is made of genuine leather. Each one is distressed to give it that well-worn, vintage look. The same size as the Steve Jobs biography, BookBook feels perfectly natural in your hand. Dual zippers make accessing your gear easy and convenient. Hardback covers and a rigid spine protect your iPad and gear from dings along the road. It’s easy to see how well BookBook keeps your iPad and accessories out of sight, even when they’re in plain view.

Travel Journal & Compass 2: The perfect duo for the iPad user on the go.

BookBook Travel Journal was designed to be home for almost any iPad and its accessories - including Compass 2. Travel Journal is as practical as it is stylish - with pockets to organize and keep your iPad essentials at your fingertips, and Compass 2 is a clever stand that works in portrait and landscape, and has two angles for comfortable viewing and typing.

Protects iPad, headphones, and must-have accessories.

BookBook Travel Journal has two hardback book covers and a rigid spine to protect your iPad and iPad accessories from scrapes, nicks and bumps. There’s even room for premium headphones with fold-flat ear cups. Along with protecting your iPad, expensive headphones and other gear from physical damage, BookBook Travel Journal cleverly disguises them as a vintage book, protecting them from theft.

Meet the whole family.

Our library of BookBooks covers iPhones, iPads and MacBooks. These beautiful, genuine leather cases look and feel like vintage books. Hardback covers protect your device and the unique design disguises your Mac, protecting it from theft. BookBook for iPhone doubles as a wallet.
