What can we say about Pad and Quill that we haven’t already said? We love their cases! The moleskine style bookbound cases takes us back to bygone eras like Paris in the roaring 20’s… Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, Dali, and many other iconic figures all chumming it up in the local watering holes sketching out notes, drawings, and masterpieces in their little black books… While those days may be long past, the tradition is kept alive through companies like Pad & Quill. They make some of the coolest iPad 2 cases we’ve reviewed, hands down. Their selection continues to grow, so here’s a roundup of all the iPad 2 cases offered by one of our favorite companies!
College Edition iPad 2 Case
At the lowest end of their lineup, P&Q offers the College Edition iPad 2 case in three different colors. This is a basic version of their more fancy cases, but still has every bit of the style and class. Featuring a trendy old school bookbound cloth exterior, the moleskine elastic binding, hand carved birch frame, and more, this case will score you street cred and props on any college campus. Plus, the price is so low, you may not even have to call your parents to buy one! The College Edition iPad 2 case is on sale for $49.99 right now.

Contega iPad 2 Case
Taking the Octavo a few steps further, the Contega is an inspired design and a truly unique bookbound iPad 2 case. Not only does it feature the same classic styling that we all know and love, the same quality Italian bonded leather exterior and sturdy baltic birch interior, but it also turns itself into a stand with 2 different viewing positions! One second it’s a black moleskine journal, and the next it’s a distinguished iPad stand! We love this transformer and its unique characteristics. There’s nothing else like it on the market.

Little Black Book iPhone 4 Case
This isn’t an iPad 2 case, but it deserves honorable mention because we are sure that if you read this far, you love these cases just as much as we do. If you are thinking of scoring yourself one of Pad and Quill’s iPad 2 cases, then you might as well pick up a Little Black Book iPhone 4 Case while your at it. Built exactly like the Octavo case, this iPhone 4 book case has all the great features and class, and it comes in a tiny package! Wow your friends with your tiny little black book, nobody will know why you are talking into your journal… but you clearly have good taste, so nobody will question it either.
