What About This?


Big Features — mini BookBook.

BookBook for iPad mini is a handmade, genuine leather hardback case made exclusively for iPad mini. BookBook protects your iPad mini by securely holding it inside a built-in support frame that is enveloped between two hardback book covers and a rigid spine. Not only that, your iPad mini is also disguised as a vintage book, adding a level of theft protection. This clever case also doubles as a desktop wedge and a multi-angle display stand.


Light as a feather. Massive protection.

When you pick up BookBook for iPad mini, you will be surprised by how light this case is. Weighing a mere 7.5 ounces, this featherlight case offers serious protection for your precious iPad mini. Outside, two hardback book covers and a rigid spine provide impact and crush protection. Inside, a built-in support frame holds iPad mini in place while the soft, black suede lining protects the screen and aluminum iPad body from scratches.

Two BookBooks in one.

BookBook for iPad mini doubles as a desktop wedge and a multi-angle display stand. Lift up the interior support frame inside this BookBook and flip down the handy kickstand to type on iPad or use it as a secondary touchscreen computer. Parked next to your iMac or MacBook, BookBook angles iPad mini perfectly for using productivity apps like Calculator, Notes, and Reminders. You can stay focused on the big screen and use iPad mini for smaller, but important tasks. Fold out the BookBook support frame further to create an adjustable display stand for watching videos, having FaceTime chats or viewing iPhoto slideshows.

Maximum security for your mini.

One of the coolest and greatest features of BookBook is the fact that it disguises your iPad mini to look like a small vintage book. With iPad mini tucked safely inside BookBook, you’re shielding it, and all of your valuable photos and data, from the eyes of those with itchy fingers. When BookBook is sitting on a table at a coffee shop, the passenger seat of your car or anywhere else, people will have no idea there’s an iPad mini inside.

Every book feels like a short story.

There’s nothing like curling up with an iBook in a BookBook. It makes reading an e-book feel more like holding a real book in your hands. The black, soft suede interior doesn’t distract your eyes from what’s on the screen, and it protects the finish on your mini. For one-handed reading, fold the BookBook covers together to reveal the hand grip. You can hold iPad mini with one hand without your fingers touching the screen.

Choose from three styles.

This version of BookBook is available in Vintage Brown, Classic Black and Vibrant Red. Like our other versions of BookBook, this one has dual zippers so you can charge iPad while it sits safely inside BookBook. The built-in interior support frame allows easy access to all of the iPad mini buttons and ports. You can even take photos and videos without having to remove your iPad from the case. The end.

Customer Review by: Rcansas on March 9th, 2014

Beautiful and practical sleeve for the iPad. The feel of the leather is a pleasure to hold and the case brings comments whenever I pull it out of my bag. The workmanship is solid and the stitching is strong for even fast zipping and unzipping. I have bought the BookBook for two Macbook Pro retinas, my iPhone 5 and 4S and always look to Twelve South before purchasing any covers or cases. Great product and fabulous customer service.
