  • Putting your iPad into the case can be somewhat tedious as the straps do not have much give for the bottom corner holders and after just several days I noticed that two of the stiches and glue came loose on the right side

      The BookBook Case by TwelveSouth is made to be compatable with all three generations of the iPad. It is leatherbound and hand-stressed for a “old” feel and look to it. There is a zipper with two zipper that allows you to close the case that feels secure and sturdy.

      On the inside the case is made of a suede-like material for cushion and guranteed not to scratch or scuff your device. The iPad is kept in place by two corner holsters at the bottom made out of leather and held together by stiching and glue.

      while the top half of the iPad is held down by an elastic strap that barely goes across the top of the screen and below


      the front facing camera of later generations of the iPad. The case also transforms into a viewing stand for video by allowing the user to fold the BookBook in half from the inside out and tie it into place with the use of a leather twine and leather button to wrap the twine around.

      After using the case for two weeks I must say that the design is very lovely and made of high quality materials but the case is not without its faults.

      • glue came loose on the right side.

        The elastic strap for the top has me pushing my ipad back down into the holders and has become almost second nature because it covers a sliver of my screen that annoys me, though it may not bother you. The suede inside collects dirt and dust rather quickly if you do not keep the case closed for a majority of its use and holding your tablet with the back streatched around causes the grime and sweat from my fingers to build up on the suede side.

        There really is no typing angle for the stand which for me is a big let down and with the unsanitary coffee tables of my local shops

        I never feel comfortable setting it down with the suede side out. The huge benefacto for this case is that it doubles as a disguise making it look like I am carrying a sketchbook around the college campus without anybody noticing what it really is at first glance and even at second glance until I tell them.

        The BookBook by twelvesouth is also available for iPhone 4/4S, Macbook Pro and MacBook Air. The iPad version retails at $69.

        99 which is a hefty price tag for lack of usability, but worth the charm and put off of making it look like your carrying nothing more than literature.
