Curious contraptions: A novel approach

The ultimate notebook

Remember those old VHS video cases that were designed to make your tapes look like high-brow books on the bookshelf. Well here’s the 21st century equivalent. The nattily-titled Book Book disguises your MacBook as a leather-bounded hardback. Throw away your slick, modern neoprene case and slip the laptop within the Book Book’s vintage trappings. No-one will ever suspect you’re carrying a grand’s worth of kit under you arm plus your pride and joy will be safe from scratches and scrapes. Each book is hand-distressed meaning that no two volumes are ever the same.

Instant steampunkery. Of sorts. And just in time for the iPad.
