A company called Twelve South recently released a new BookBook case for the latest Kindle Paperwhite model.
The BookBook case has a unique design that makes it look like a vintage hardcover book. The case is made from hand-distressed genuine leather and the interior has a microfiber layer.
It has the usual automatic sleep/wake feature when opening and closing the cover, and it also has a built-in stand that folds out for hands-free reading.
These BookBook style covers are popular with Apple products, including iPhones, MacBooks and iPads. This is the first Kindle cover the Twelve South company has made.
It’s a nice-looking cover that provides a good amount of impact protection with the hard covers and rigid spine, and it could possibly prevent Kindle thieves from stealing your Kindle if they just think it’s a regular book, but obviously the main downside is it’s a lot bulkier than a typical Kindle case.
The BookBook cover is available for the current 10th generation Kindle Paperwhite model only—the case will not fit other Kindles. It sells for $49.99 with free shipping from Amazon.

My first thought when I started the video was… “Ok, another Kitsch Kindle case…looks pretty cool.” Then the stand pops out…”Ok, I see you…love it.”
Everything I dislike about ereader cases turned up to 11.
Bob Merlin says
I agree! Too bulky and too much $$$. I like cases where the Kindle has a plastic back frame and not held in place by “leather.”
I’ve been looking for a case to make my kindle heavier, larger and overly twee.

Like the Idea, Love the Looks, Abhor the Price!
Bob Cross says
Hmm, that price is into official case levels. Think I’ll stick to my Klevercase ones – made by actual bookbinders, way prettier and cheaper. I’m onto my second Kindle and third Klevercase case, so they’re durable too.
WHOA – their kindle voyage cases are on clearance!! Score!!
