A Novel Idea

Isn’t this laptop sleeve nifty?  Twelve South has designed a unique hardback sleeve called the BookBook for the MacBook and MacBook Pro. 

From the website:

BookBook is a one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed exclusively for MacBook and MacBook Pro. Available in Classic Black or Vibrant Red, BookBook brings three levels of security to your prized Mac. First, the hardback cover and spine provide solid protection from the rigors of the road. Second, the vintage book design disguises MacBook for superior security. And third, the stylish case protects you from being like everyone else because BookBook is totally original, just like you.

It reminds me of an old-fashioned atlas.  I love the weathered look of it and the little details—like the “VOL XII” on the spine in honor of the company name.  I was tempted to order one for myself—call it a Valentine’s Day present, if you will—but it’s probably more practical for someone who doesn’t use their laptop all the time.  I think it would look cool on a bookshelf in a home office or a coffee table in a family room—whereas my MacBook Pro spends all its time on the kitchen table right now.  Perhaps Twelve South will design a sleeve that looks like a cookbook…
