Hook just completed a new brochure for Crisis Ministries. To achieve a nice homegrown, earthy feel, we created the hand-stamped covers out of cardboard and bound the 11 page piece book with some good old fashioned screws and bolts. Inside pages were printed on French Speckletone True White. Quick turn-a-round piece designed to help Crisis Ministries raise capital for a new building.

Twelve South Introduces BookBook for iPad.

•August 16, 2010 • 1 Comment

Today, our friends at Twelve South introduced the highly anticipated BookBook for iPad. As you can see above, BookBook is designed to look like a vintage novel. What’s really neat about this case is it feels just like a book in your hands, making reading iBooks even more of a pleasure. And get this, flip the book inside out and now you have a stand for watching movies, videos and iPhoto slideshows.

The hardback leather covers have tough, reinforced corners for impact protection. Beautiful spine and a rigid interior frame provide crush protection. Because it looks like a book, this stealthy case also keeps your iPad out of sight from thieves.  BookBook is also available for MacBook and MacBook Pro.
