Product Information

  • Overview

    BookBook is extra light and ultra-thin. This genuine leather case has rigid hardback covers with reinforced corners to protect MacBook from impacts, yet it weighs a mere 13.5 ounces. And its soft, chocolate brown, padded interior helps preserve the finish on your Mac.

    Beautifully versatile

    You can use BookBook like a traditional sleeve. Or you can secure your MacBook in place with the elastic corner bands, so you're free to use it without removing BookBook. This unique case also provides an additional level of security by disguising your MacBook as a vintage novel.

    I have been looking for a case/sleeve ever since I bought the MBA.
    I have seen & tried Incase & Hard Candy Case/Sleeves at Apple I have been looking for a case/sleeve ever since I bought the MBA.
    I have seen & tried Incase & Hard Candy Case/Sleeves at Apple store but did not like them much, but this one is the best ! Although it may be a little bulky for some people.
    Fits very well in my Laptop Briefcase and Backpack, also you can carry the case itself which looks cool .
    For me thumbs up ! Only complaint maybe the price !

It has been very durable. I was afraid the leather finish would scratch badly but it does not. Looks as good as the day I bought it. I have had no issues with computer overheating. The main thing I wish they would add are two more elastic straps for the bottom corners of the case to keep the Air from sliding forward and out of the upper elastic straps. Perhaps there is an obvious reason not to that I haven't observed, but this has been a continual issue. After two years of continual use one elastic strap has broken and the zipper is starting to come loose from the cover (which may have received a bit of help from a certain nine year old boy). I will gladly buy another identical Bookbook case when this one bites the dust even with the minor issues.

The BookBook provides great protection for my Mac while oozing quality and raising attention for the originality from others at the same time. We have it for all the Macs in the family.
