Mac in a Book: BookBook Got You Covered January 22, 2010 – Tags:

The folks at Twelve South have just unveiled their latest Mac accessory, the BookBook, and it brings a whole new meaning to e-books.

The BookBook is a hardback leather carrying case for your MacBook or MacBook Pro.

“Zip it closed and your baby is nestled between two tough, rigid leather hardback covers for a solid level of impact absorbing protection. The rigid spine serves as crush protection for an additional line of defense. BookBook creates a hardback book structure that safeguards your MacBook like few other cases can.”
These one-of-a-kind designs come in two colors; Classic Black or Vibrant Red and retail for $79.99.

In addition to the sleek and sturdy design Twelve South boasts that the “BookBook is the perfect disguise,” providing “superior security” by masking your laptop as a “vintage piece of literature”

Though it might provide the extra security for your laptop it also might tempt the crooked bibliophile; for many a piece of “vintage literature” has more value than laptop.

I could see it now. Someone leaves their BookBook covered Mac on the table at the library. A book thief sees it, swipes it and is utterly disappointed when they get home, open it, an find they have been duped.
