Rutledge Bookbook is a leather MacBook case that looks like a 17th century book, giving old-soul Mac users an old school option for protecting their glossy MacBooks. The Bookbook collection of laptop cases is designed to look like a vintage leather-bound book and shield the laptop between a pair of hardback covers with a padded interior.

The Rutledge edition stands out in that it boasts a level of aesthetic detail missing from other Bookbook cases. Twelve South, the company behind the Bookbooks, developed a unique technique for finishing the leather that gives the Rutledge its beautiful, detailed look. The designers applied several layers of color and removed particular elements by hand, leaving a rich pattern of hues and tones.

The case includes dual zippers and elastic bands to slip over the display, meaning the computer can be safely used while still inside its case. Stats for Deceptive Literary Laptop Cases Trending: Older & Mild
