Adding to its growing BookBook line of products, TwelveSouth today announced its new Travel Journal, a unified iPad and accessory carrying case.

The Travel Journal is designed to carry an iPad, power adapter, cables, head phones, and more, using a collection of pockets and adjustable bands to organize and protect items, all inside a large BookBook-style case.

Travel Journal

BookBook Travel Journal looks like a vintage book, but it’s really a dapper, hardback leather case designed to hold your iPad and the essential accessories that go with it. Inside you’ll find a collection of pockets and adjustable bands that neatly organize and protect items like your power adapter, cables, USB drives, stylus, mouse, earbuds or high-end headphones. Say bye-bye to your backpack. Everything you need for the road fits inside BookBook Travel Journal.

The Travel Journal uses two hardback book covers and a rigid spine to protect the contents, with the vintage book look to discourage theft. BookBook Travel Journal is compatible with all models of iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad and is available from TwelveSouth's website for $99.99.

I like the idea, but wow that thing is thick. If I am going with just my iPad I don't want to be caring a book the size of the Gutenberg Bible. Plus I would want it to still fit in my laptop bag so I could have a separate pull-out organizer for small items, but again, too thick.

When cases/bags cost approaches 30%+ of device cost I stop reading :D

Why?

Depending on what you're saying, I agree. :D

A good, well-made bag can last years beyond the lifetime of the devices which it carries. I don't now how well the 12 South products hold up over time, but if it holds up well, it could easily be worth the price of admission.

I wish they would fix the BookBook for iPhone 5... the case has destroyed my phones screen. They should have stuck with the 4/4S design, it was significantly better.

And it didn't make a dent in the build quality from the original either.

Why did the case destroy your screen? I had the BookBook for iPhone 4S, and now have one for the iPhone 5S, so I have a vested interest in knowing.

What exactly was the problem in your situation?
