Twelve South has announced that it will start shipping its hugely popular BookBook case for the iPhone 5 this Monday. The BookBook was first made available back in 2011 and was a superb case that was also a fully functioning wallet. If you were looking for a converged case and wallet then you couldn’t do much better than this. Well from Monday you can get hold of one for your iPhone 5 too.
Between the hardback covers of BookBook for iPhone 5, you’ll find a leather-wrapped frame that securely holds iPhone and offers edge-to-edge access to all four inches of iPhone’s stunning Retina display. You'll have easy access to all ports and buttons as well. Thanks to customer feedback, this BookBook has a built-in camera hole so you can quickly capture photos with the iPhone 5 iSight camera. And Apple’s Passbook app is a great way to carry your rewards cards, airline cards and coupons without fattening your wallet.
One look and you’ll be hooked on this beautifully-designed mini book. Available in your choice of Classic Black and Vintage Brown, each BookBook is hand-distressed using high quality leather. BookBook is a conversation piece and a totally unique case that disguises your phone and wallet, while protecting both. It’s a wallet that looks like no other and a case that keeps your iPhone from looking like everyone else’s.
The BookBook case will cost $59.99 regardless of your color choice; although Vintage Brown is only available at launch. Shipping is included in the price in the US and Twelve South does offer international shipping at extra cost. Could you see yourself using a case like this? I personally love the look of this case and think it looks extremely well made too.
