BookBook Rutledge Edition is the most distinctive version of our unique BookBook family. The Rutledge is tailored from premium leather and each mesmerizing cover is a unique work of art. No two look exactly alike. Like our other BookBook models, this beauty features two hardback covers, a rigid spine and a velvety soft padded interior to protect your device. While the case protects your iPad or MacBook, the design protects your unique sense of style. The Rutledge Edition is available for iPad Air, iPad mini and MacBook.
Rutledge BookBook for iPad Air and iPad mini.
The Rutledge Edition BookBook is more than just a beautiful case to protect iPad. BookBook Rutledge doubles as a hands-free display stand with 30 degrees of angle adjustment, so you can clearly see the person you’re FaceTiming with or the movie you’re streaming. Rutledge also has a built-in typing stand so you can keep up on emails, Facebook updates and tackle documents in Pages. Just for iPad, Rutledge has special touches, like a small notch in the support frame that allows you to access Notification Center in iOS 7. Rutledge is a unique, ultra light and super slim way to personalize and protect your iPad Air or iPad mini.
We re-wrote the book on finishing leather.
The remarkable design on each Rutledge is a story in itself. We developed an entirely new technique for applying multiple layers of color, then carefully removing selected elements – revealing a radiant tapestry of hues and patterns. Each cover reveals a slightly different finish, as the brilliant tones follow the natural grain of the leather itself. This creates a premium yet distinctive look you won’t see on any other “me too” case or sleeve. BookBook Rutledge is a show stopper – and conversation starter – at the same time.
Beautiful way to disguise your MacBook.
One of the best features of owning a BookBook is that it keeps your expensive MacBook out of sight. People will see a vintage book sitting on the coffee shop counter or front seat of your car, not your MacBook. We have many letters from customers telling us their car or home was broken into but thankfully their MacBook was left behind, only because it was hidden inside a BookBook.
Like no other MacBook case.
BookBook Rutledge Edition works as an attached MacBook case or as a slip-in sleeve. As an attached case, two soft elastic bands gently grab the corners of your MacBook screen, holding it in place while you work. Leather zipper pulls give the appearance of a bookmark, while gold foil accents add to the design of Rutledge BookBook.
Made to protect the story of your life.
The Rutledge Edition for MacBook is more than just a pretty face. It has two hardback covers with reinforced corners and a rigid spine to protect your MacBook from impacts and drops. A soft padded interior cushions your Mac, while protecting its finish. Dual zippers keep BookBook closed, while still allowing you to charge your MacBook stored safely inside.
