  • There are no shortage of cases for the iPad, but this one is practical, fun, and stylish. The BookBook case looks like a real leather-bound book, providing complete protection for the iPad on the go. It also disguises the iPad as a simple book, which may fool the casual thief in public places.

    The BookBook case is not cheap but has quality construction of aged leather.

  • The touch screen of the iPad is a good virtual canvas, but finger painting is no good for serious artists. This line of real artist brushes are designed to make "painting" on the iPad screen a reality, and a good one. There are different brushes to choose from depending on your needs, from short ones to longer brushes.

    The company's web site has video to show the budding artist how to best use these brushes to create real masterpieces. There is even a set of brushes for kids to turn them into iPad artists.

    I noticed that you included a good selection of audio based accessories in your image gallery.

    One other audio accessory which your readers may consider is called "iRig MIDI"

    This tiny device (just a tad lager than an iPod Nano or Shuffle) connects to any iOS device thru the 30 pin serial connector and connects to any MIDI enabled device with a pair of included DIN MIDI cables.

    This device acts as a bridge between a person's iPad, for example, and a MIDI keyboard. Because it uses a standard Core MIDI interface, it is compatible with GarageBand and other MIDI supported apps.
