BookBook now available for 15-inch rMBP
Twelve South has launched a new version of its BookBook case designed for the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. Made from genuine leather, the BookBook resembles a worn coffee table book that includes a rounded spine and two hardback covers. A soft padded interior protects the MacBook shell from scratches, while two Victorian emblems on the front of the case ensure customers always open the case right side up. The 15-inch Retina BookBook can be ordered online for $80.
