BookBook turns your iPad into a classic book

I have anticipated this day for quite some time.  Twelve South, the makers of iconic products for the Mac and more recently the iPad, have finally released the BookBook case.  The BookBook has been available for Macbook's for some time and they are gorgeous real leather, black, brown and red works of art that you store your laptop in.  When closed, they look just like classic novels.

It was only a matter of time before an iPad version was produced.  I've been on the BookBook for iPad waiting list and I will get mine soon and give a more in-depth review.  For now, take a look at the following photos and head to Twelve South's website to see this merger of technology and classic literary styling.

BookBook for iPad

At $70 (free shipping), it's not one of the cheaper iPad cases available but Twelve South's products are not made cheaply either.  Plus the BookBook doubles as a stand.

The iPad, safely ensconced in a BookBook, while reading an assortment of classic novels may be the culmination of style and substance, something Apple knows a bit about.
