well... you could get a dc-dc converter that takes 12v in and outputs
24v, like this http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10001_10001_155695_-1
then, with 24v you could use a pair of resistors in a voltage divider
circuit to get +/- 12v: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltage_divider

Another option is to use an 12->120v inverter and then use a computer
power supply. ATX, for example, has +/- 12 volt outputs:
