Ever since book-inspired iPad covers first appeared, there have been more and more available, including some directly from Moleskine. Personally, I like my iPad covers to do just two things: protect my iPad and double as a stand. If I’m lucky, there’s a keyboard. While it doesn’t have a keyboard, the French Cover looks pretty nice and it’s handmade in France.
The French Cover definitely looks sophisticated, heck it looks more like a Moleskine notebook than the iPad covers available from Moleskine themselves. The case is made out of leather and the flexible spine and wooden case allow you to use it in a variety of different positions. It even supports the iPad’s automatic sleep/wake capability, and has a cutout for the rear camera. It also has a wooden frame in which your iPad stays securely. No cheapo rubber bands or elastics here! You can also choose from a variety of different colors for the interior of the book.
It’s a more stealthy-looking notebook case than I’ve seen before, and it sells for €69.95 (~$86 USD) directly from The French Cover.
