Twelve South on Tuesday announced a redesigned BookBook case for the iPad – the case that makes it look like you’re carrying a vintage leather-bound book rather than an iPad. BookBook for iPad “Volume 2″ costs $79.99.
The new BookBook is 33 percent thinner and features a new interior frame that enables you to pivot it at multiple angles with the iPad inside. A new built-in typing stand is also integrated. Dual zippers provide access to the dock connector port without removing the iPad from the case.
Twelve South notes that the iPad is more secure from potential thieves when inside the BookBook case – the company has received testimonials from BookBook owners who have been robbed, but have had their hardware saved from theft by being hidden within the BookBook case.
The BookBook comes in three “editions” – Classic Black, Vintage Brown and Vibrant Red.
