    About Product

    The handcrafted book-bound cover is made in our US  bookbindery and features a Smart Cover with magnets to activate sleep/wake functionality.

    The Classic Black iPad DODOcase is a similar design to our traditional DODOcase inspired by the artist journals of years gone by - but made with a more durable and slimmer profile polymer tray, 27% thinner than our old tray.

    This new tray provides a snug fit for your device. All corners are protected, but there is still open access to all device ports and buttons.

    The Classic Black iPad case is available in four different interior colors: Red, Waves, Charcoal, and Geometric.

    Our superior quality materials, extreme attention to detail, and the perfected techniques of our skilled artisans make this case a perfect match for you.

    All DODOcases are handcrafted by skilled craftsmen with over 20 years of experience in the bookbinding industry. We continue to provide work for artists and craftspeople by keeping US manufacturing alive with your support.


    Feel good about your purchase, knowing you help those who choose to follow their dreams with a career in the arts.

    Questions & Answers

    Have a Question?

    Ask a Question
    • can you fold the front cover back, behind the iPad, while reading or using the iPad?

      Hello. Yes, you can fold our cases back while reading/using your ipad. Because our cases are book-style, the spine does create a small amount of space when folded back so it is not 100% flush. We also don't recommend forcing it back too hard as the cover "hinges" could break. But many of our customers do fold them back like you described.

    • I’m confused. I have a iPad Air 2 (2014). What cover do you have that works for it?

      Hello. Your iPad model is on our website as iPad Air (2nd Gen) in the drop down menus. You can find cases for that model here:

    • What do you do with the pen loop if you don't have/use an Apple Pencil? (Is it possible to order the case without the pen loop?)

      Hello. We do add a pen loop on all of our cases that are compatible with the Apple Pencil but if you email after you place your order you can request we not include it.

    • Will the apple pencil charge when stored in the loop on the side?

      Hello. Yes, the elastic pen loops still allow the Apple Pencil to connect magnetically and charge.

    • Is this case made of genuine leather? What are the stand positions? What does each look like?

      Hello. Our Classic Black cases are wrapped in library grade linen (like a hard bound book). There is also a protective coating as well. We do have genuine leather cases which you can find here:

      Our cases allow for angle viewing. We add non slip pads so the angle can be adjusted manually.
