Twelve South BookBook Case for iPhone 5/5s

  • Overview

    The Twelve South BookBook for iPhone 5 is a handsome hybrid case that provides one place for your iPhone and the contents of your wallet. This pocket-size book also protects your iPhone in two ways. Hard-back book covers shield against bumps and bruises, while the unique visual design disguises your wallet and phone.

    All-in-one convenience

    Slip your driver's license, bank cards, and a little cash into the right side of BookBook, then snap your iPhone 5 into the leather wrapped frame on the opposite side and the story is complete. Grab your keys, BookBook, and head out the door.

    Get the most out of iPhone 5

    Tailored exclusively for your iPhone 5, Book Book has a built-in camera hole that lets you easily snap photos with the iSight camera or shoot stunning HD videos. BookBook's snap-in frame allows edge-to-edge access to all four inches of the Retina display. You also have easy access to all buttons and ports.

      Good product: well thought out

It r First day of having this wallet/case, I had a few gripes: -The wallet would not close all the way unless I put the phone face up and the weight closes it. It really bothered me. -Very uncomfortable talking on the phone. Wasn't sure how anyone could hold the phone. -No place for cash. It's too big and won't let it close on me. Having the case for a month, I can say I like it! -The wallet fully closes now whichever side I put it on. -I learned that I needed to fold back the case with the credit cards and such sticking out. The case gave grip to the phone and now I feel uncomfortable without it. -Still no place for cash, but I feel like it grew on me. I carry 3 credit cards, my license, and a couple receipts and it's more than enough. Overall, I would recommend the case, but it does take getting a little use to. I'm the type of person that always forgets either his wallet or phone, and having two in one makes forgetting both much harder. It is a little thicker in my pocket, but I've gotten use to it, and I don't need to worry about having my keys in the same pocket as my phone anymore! A++ would recommend!

      Twelve South does it again

      I love this latest BookBook. The snap in case is an improvement over the old slide in type of the 4s version. I also like the camera hole and the fact i can hol I love this latest BookBook. The snap in case is an improvement over the old slide in type of the 4s version. I also like the camera hole and the fact i can hold more cards is a plus. You can't go wrong if you get this. It eliminates the need for a phone case and a wallet. I have one on my MacBook air and my New iPad, awesome!!!!!! I get a lot of complements when people notice it.

      Beautiful case. Beautiful functionality.

      This case has exceeded my expectations. The Good: My iPhone 5 snapped right in and is held very securely. I have my drivers license plus 3 credit cards in This case has exceeded my expectations. The Good: My iPhone 5 snapped right in and is held very securely. I have my drivers license plus 3 credit cards in it and it doesn't feel stretched at all. The case is incredibly attractive and looks like on of those little field notebooks. When I show it to people they all comment on how beautiful it looks and feels. Some of complained of call quality going down but after making several test calls I was told that my calls sounded great. This newer version also has the camera hole in the back unlike the one for the iPhone 4/4s. The Bad: If you use hands free accessories to talk (e.g. car connection, Bluetooth earpiece, or headphone/speakers included with phone) then this case is ideal. If you speak by placing the phone to your ear a lot, then you might be a little inconvenienced as it is slightly more bulky and you have to flip the one side of the book to the back. The Ugly: None. This case is absolutely beautiful.

      Bookless

      Bought the BookBook about a year ago, cost me over $100.00 as I live in Canada. I was a little shocked at the cost but thought it'd be a quality product. Was I Bought the BookBook about a year ago, cost me over $100.00 as I live in Canada. I was a little shocked at the cost but thought it'd be a quality product. Was I mistaken, Canadian money doesn't fit in it, so you have to fold it which makes impractical to carry money in. The spine discoloured and looks terrible. The credit card slots on the interior have all stretched so you can't put cards in them as will just slip out. Lost my drivers licence and health card today. So today is the garbage day for my BookBook just where it belongs. Worst $100 I've spent.

      Book Book for 6+

      I have been using Book Books for years, and have always loved them. I just moved up to iphone6+, and I like the Book Book again, but there is one feature I abs I have been using Book Books for years, and have always loved them. I just moved up to iphone6+, and I like the Book Book again, but there is one feature I absolutely loathe about the 6+ case. I can not stand the removable part of the case. My phone is always sliding out of the little grommets that should hold it securely in. I am seriously thinking about removing my phone and attempting to glue the removable case onto the little pegs that should be holding it on. Has anyone else found this sliding feature to be a nuisance? All in all, its a nice case, and I still would recommend it.

The phone is secure to the leather cover but is easy Love this new case for my iPhone 6plus. I had something similar for my iPhone 4S but this is much nicer. The phone is secure to the leather cover but is easy to remove when needed. Some sort of method of holding it closed would be nice. Due to my previous experience with wallets, I placed an elastic ribbon around the wallet side of the case (vertically) and sewed it in place at the bottom. It looks like a ribbon bookmark but holds my cards in place. I just slip the elastic off the top of wallet side to remove whichever card I need. I also like the that the card slots actually fit my driver's license. All in all I'm very please with this purchase and am sure that it will outlast my iPhone!
