Twelve South has been making cool cases for the iPad and their latest BookBook vol 2 for the new iPad is no exception:
BookBook for iPad is a handmade, one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case for the New iPad (3rd generation) and iPad 2. This multi-functional case features an interior support frame that creates a variable-angle display stand and a built-in typing stand. Along with its vintage look, this case makes iPad feel as if you’re holding a real book, and in many ways you are. BookBook for iPad provides two forms of protection. First, the hardback cover and rigid spine provide impact protection for your prized iPad. Second, the unique vintage book design of this case disguises iPad, helping protect it from theft. BookBook for iPad is available in three colors: Vintage Brown, Classic Black and Vibrant Red.
You can buy it online from Twelve South for $79.99.
What I like about this type of iPad cover is that like the one sold by Dodocase, it makes you look as if you are carrying a book and therefore, your iPad is a less obvious target for thieves. All they see is a person carrying a book! Moreover, there’s more protection for your iPad if you drop it.
