Twelve South has been making cool cases for the iPad and their latest BookBook vol 2 for the new iPad is no exception:

BookBook for iPad is a handmade, one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case for the New iPad (3rd generation) and iPad 2. This multi-functional case features an interior support frame that creates a variable-angle display stand and a built-in typing stand. Along with its vintage look, this case makes iPad feel as if you’re holding a real book, and in many ways you are. BookBook for iPad provides two forms of protection. First, the hardback cover and rigid spine provide impact protection for your prized iPad. Second, the unique vintage book design of this case disguises iPad, helping protect it from theft. BookBook for iPad is available in three colors: Vintage Brown, Classic Black and Vibrant Red.

You can buy it online from Twelve South for $79.99.

What I like about this type of iPad cover is that like the one sold by Dodocase, it makes you look as if you are carrying a book and therefore, your iPad is a less obvious target for thieves. All they see is a person carrying a book! Moreover, there’s more protection for your iPad if you drop it.

Two of my favorite accessories companies in San Francisco, DODOcase (maker of stylish, sturdy iPad cases, one of which I own) and Rickshaw Bags (maker of cool messenger bags) have collaborated to bring you a fabulous new bag for your iPad. The DODObag is designed specifically around the DODOcase for iPad. The black exterior and red interior theme pays respect to their first product, the DODOcase classic.

This perfectly sized messenger bag is made of Cordura brand nylon, the classic outdoor industry fabric, used for packs and messenger bags for the last thirty years. This particular fabric comes from a company in the United States called Brookwood Industries. The fabric is woven here in the United States. And these bags are assembled right in San Francisco. So this is a pure-play and made in the USA.

I have been using DODOcase for my iPad for a long time and I am a big fan of their products. Now they are selling beautiful iPad cases designed by local artists such as Rex Ray.  Here’s a description from the DODOcase website:

Rex Ray is a San Francisco based fine artist whose work seamlessly blends beauty with a subversive edge stemming from an attitude grounded in alternative subculture! Abstract and handcrafted, with a retro-futuristic feel, Rex Ray’s work is always identifiable, whether found in museums or on gallery walls, in hip restaurants, boutique hotels — or on your favorite books and album covers, or rock posters. A wide selection of Rex’s work can be found at www.rexray.com. Follow Rex on Twitter @rexraystudio.

CASE CONSTRUCTION

Made from black Moroccan cloth and constructed using traditional book binding techniques, the cover of the Rex Ray DODOcase for the iPad 2 is designed to fold back to be used as a stand. Using a traditional foil stamping technique, Rex Ray has successfully created a case that is both uniquely Rex Ray AND uniquely DODOcase. An elastic strap keeps your DODOcase securely fastened and your iPad protected while on the go. Offering a new solid core bamboo, complete with a four-piece tray design this specialty DODOcase perfectly matches the curvature of your iPad 2 while providing access to all buttons and ports.

Price: $89.95, Rex Ray DODOcase for iPad2

I love my DODOcase for the iPad. And now as I contemplate replacing my old iPad with an iPad2, I must necessarily consider the purchase of a new iPad2 case. In the previous article I profiled a gorgeous iPad2 case (which is actually also a bag) from KillSpencer. But if all you want is a case (not a bag), then check out the new limited edition DODOcase for iPad2 (pictured above).

DODOcase makes a sturdy, simple and elegant case for the iPad. I have taken my iPad on travels in Asia, Latin America and Europe, and DODOcase has served me well because it is lightweight and its exterior is tough. When closed, it looks as if you are carrying a Moleskine notebook. This is important because it does not attract the attention of thieves. The new iPad2 case from DODOcase looks even better than the one I have.

Here’s a product description: Made from black and white Moroccan cloth and constructed using traditional book binding techniques, the cover of the Limited Edition DODOcase for the iPad 2 is designed to fold back to be used as a stand. The date of the iPad 2 launch is expertly detailed on the side using classic book binding foil stamping techniques. An elastic strap keeps your iPad protected while on the go. Offering a new solid core bamboo, complete with a four-piece tray design the Limited Edition DODOcase perfectly matches the curvature of your iPad 2 and provides access to all buttons and ports.

Price: $89.95. Made in the USA.

I love this iPad2 leather case from Killspencer, which is really a small bag, that can also carry your iPhone, a notebook, and business cards. The exterior is black leather with a matte finish and a black leather bullhide handle. Inside the lining is neoprene and the zippers are water resistant. Dimensions: case size 8.25″ X 10.5″; large exterior pocket size 8.25″ X 8.75″; two smaller exterior pockets 4.25″ X 3.5″. The price is $189.

If leather isn’t your think, Killspencer has an iPad2 case in wax black filter twill for $150. According to the company, “original wax” black filter twill is a new utilitarian fabric originally designed and manufactured in 1837 as a military spec. It is water repellent and has been designed for use in hunting, fishing and sailing.

All Killspencer bags are made in the USA.

Here are my top 5 choices for those who are looking to buy a stylish MacBook Air sleeve.

Shuky is a design firm based in Melbourne, Australia. Their MacBook Air sleeve looks like a manila envelope, except it is made out of leather. The interior is a soft, plush fabric that will not scratch your laptop. Price: AU$140.

If you know someone who has an iPad but no case, or if you are giving someone an iPad and want to include a case, check out these five stunning iPad cases that will delight any iPad user.

(1) DodoCase: I reviewed Dodocase previously on Shopplr and I find it to be an outstanding iPad case. I have taken my iPad on numerous trans-Atlantic trips inside the Dodocase. It is sturdy and attractive, and it does protect the iPad very well. Added security bonus: when it is lying on a table or when I’m carrying it in my arms, it looks like a large Moleskin notebook, meaning, it does not attract the attention of thieves. Price: $59.95. Read review of Dodocase.

(2) Boa Push iPad case from Booq Bags: Unlike the Dodocase, the Boa push iPad messenger is actually a bag where you can put in a lot of other stuff such as an iPhone, credit cards, a notepad and pens. It is made out of durable Twylon and Nappa leather. Price: $89.95.

(3) Cote et Ciel Pillow Stand iPad Grey Melange: I reviewed this iPad stand/case on Shopplr sometime ago. Unlike the other two iPad cases above, it allows you to place your iPad standing up on table so you can read it (very handy for those looking at recipes on their iPad while they are cooking). Price: 50 EUR.

(4) Hardgraft Tilt iPad Case: This elegant iPad stand and case is out of thick wool and vegetable tanned leather. It rolls into an adjustable position for typing and web browsing. The leather cover protects the screen and metal snaps keep the case closed. Price: 85 EUR.

(5) Book for iPad: similar to the Dodocase, the Book for iPad from Nedrelow is perfect for the iPad owner who worships at the altar of minimalist chic. On the inside, a 100% wool felt sleeve provides a snug fit for the iPad and the natural German felt is a sustainable and renewable material. You can have it engraved with custom text and even your logo or coat of arms for an additional cost. Basic price: $99.

Unlike my Dodocase, this is actually a bag with pockets for metro tickets, credit cards, ear phones, lipstick, pens, and other doodads that people tend to accumulate in their bags. It’s suitably gender neutral to be appealing to men and women. You can order it online from booq for $89.95.

I am ever on the lookout for unusual and well-designed iPad cases. I recently bought the Dodocase which I love, but this one called the Pillow Stand iPad case from Côte et Ciel would fulfill another function which is to get the iPad to stand on my lap or bed when I am watching a video or flipping through photos. When it is closed, it can be carried around like a clutch bag or tucked away in a backpack, briefcase or tote. It costs 50 EUR and will be available starting end of August 2010.

They have many other iPad bags and sleeves, as well as laptop carriers, Mac Book sleeves, rucksacks and more. Go to Côte et Ciel.
