I love my iPad mini. I love my Twelve South BookBook. Now I can bring my favorite tablet together with one of my favorite tablet accessories thanks to the new Twelve South BookBook for iPad mini. Here’s the news in the company’s own words.

Twelve South is proud to introduce the latest BookBook volume – BookBook for iPad mini. Conceived exclusively for the smallest iPad, BookBook for iPad mini is a compact, genuine leather case that discreetly protects iPad mini from dings, scratches and sometimes even theft. New features include a spine that allows users to hold their iPad mini without fingers blocking the screen. The versatile case also creates a wedge stand, perfect for desktop use, and a display stand for hands-free movies on the go.

The featherweight BookBook for iPad mini weighs just 7.5 ounces, and is carefully crafted with genuine, hand-distressed leather so no two are exactly alike. Outside you’ll see the tiny BookBook has hardback book covers and a rigid spine to provide impact and crush protection for iPad mini. Open BookBook for iPad mini with its dual zippers to reveal a soft, sueded, luxury lining that protects the screen.

BookBook also has an interior support frame to securely hold your iPad and showcase its amazing display. Lift the support frame and fold down the built-in kickstand to angle iPad mini for typing and for use as a secondary touchscreen desktop computer. BookBook angles iPad mini perfectly on your desk for using productivity apps like Calculator, Reminders, and Notes while you work on your Mac. Stay focused on the big screen while iPad mini and BookBook handle the small, but important tasks.

I love carrying the iPad mini and, with this new case I can carry it with all the style and functionality the Rev 2 of the BookBook brought. (You can read our review here.) It is $69.99, and it looks great!
