    Twelve South today announced a new version of its iconic BookBook case for iPad, which has been designed for Apple's latest 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

    BookBook Volume 2, like other iPad BookBooks, is a handmade leather case that's been designed to look like a classic book.


    There's a built-in shell that holds your iPad Pro in place, and when opened up, the leather case serves as a display stand when the inner shell is lifted up or, when the cover is folded back, a wedge for typing and sketching.

    Inside, there's a spot where you can hold your Apple Pencil so it doesn't get lost, and there's a camera cutout for the rear camera at the back, which is new to the BookBook.

    An interior pocket lets you hold documents or a slim Bluetooth keyboard, and the hardback covers and the spine offer all-around protection when the case is zipped shut.

    There are dual zippers so you can keep the case closed while leaving room for the USB-C cable for charging purposes, and the aforementioned display mode is ideal if you want to use it with an add-on keyboard.

    You can get the new BookBook Volume 2 from the Twelve South website, with the 11-inch version priced at $89 and the 12.9-inch version priced at $99.

    Did you bond over the cases having too much surrounding fabric ?

    Why is it called Volume 2 but has Volume 12 written on the spine? Sloppy. Hard pass.

    Reminds me of the old book-style plastic cover one could get for the VHS collection. Ugly as sh*t but kinda impressed me when I was a kid.

    I wouldn’t say it’s sloppy as it’s clearly intentional. Why they did it? Not sure. All their recent cases seem to be XII

    XII. 12. Twelvesouth. Doh.

    Finding a different excuse not to buy this horribly expensive case shouldn't be too difficult though :D

    Maybe because Twelve (XII) South is the brand. I agree that Vol II would make more sense.

    I finally realised that about 60 seconds ago. Should really be 2nd edn if they're going down the "book" route rather than Vol 2.

    Because the best way to surround and hold onto your iPad is the look and feel of a giant plastic zipper.

    smh
