Product Information

  • 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.

    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 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!

    Just received the Twelve South BookBook Case for iPhone 5, literally. I have had it for less then a day and here are my first tho Just received the Twelve South BookBook Case for iPhone 5, literally. I have had it for less then a day and here are my first thoughts:

    The Specs:
    - The spine measures about 2cm wide, and the front/back measures 13cm x 7cm.
    - As stated it has spots for 3 cards and your ID (or another card I suppose)

    The Good:
    - Initial quality appears excellent, the comments about being able to smell the leather are true
    - Yes, you can use both cameras with the case
    - I have a black iPhone 5 with the brown case and it looks great, I have seen the black on black as well and it looks very sharp as well. Have not seen a white phone in this case.
    - Yes you have access to all buttons / ports on the phone
    - I like the idea of having my wallet and phone all-in-one


    The "On the fence"
    - I am still trying to get used to the size, it is bigger then the wallet I used to carry and is much bigger then just having a phone in your pocket. I wouldn't say you would carry this around in your front pocket of your jeans. (Wondering if overtime it will get worn in and be a little more compact).
    - Holding cash, when you have say 10 bills, seems to be a bit of an issue, there is a place for cash behind the cards, but CDN money (different size then US) when folded in half still sticks out the edge and over part of the spine, and with 10 bills folded that way the case does not close well. If you are someone that rarely carries cash (or very little), then this is not an issue. I am still trying to figure out a good way to store more then 4 or 5 bills in it.

    Like I said, this is just my initial thoughts, I will update in a month or so.

    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 came 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.

I love the style and it receives many complements. It's practical too. It can hold my cards, my id, my cash, and my phone together and I only have to grab one thing out the door. Now I'm waiting for one for the iPhone 6!

  • Girl-y accessory for my iPhone 5s

    I have this case in both the black and the ledger brown. I alternate between cases, and have exclusively used just the BookBooks I have this case in both the black and the ledger brown. I alternate between cases, and have exclusively used just the BookBooks for 7 months. I am a legal assistant and these cases match the BookBook for my MacBook Air 13", so I like that. The leather smells heavenly and after using them for 7 straight months, the leather has gotten some wear, ergo giving both cases a vintage look, character, if you will. And they are sturdy.
    I use my iPhone 5s for *every*thing so I have had opportunities to accidentally drop it. The BookBook protects it. Also, I love that it holds my driver's license, a debit card, a credit card, and my health insurance card. The "hidden" pocket holds cash, or my parking card.
    All in all, this is an awesome case/wallet combo! Ladies, this is a girl-y accessory. If nothing else, this is a great conversation starter at the check out line or at my local Starbucks!

It's stylis I've been using this case with my 5S for the past three months and absolutely love it! The build quality is excellent. It's stylish, durable and highly functional. My iPhone is held firmly in place, yet is easy to remove when I want to set the phone in a charging dock. All of the buttons are easily accessible. It's very convenient to have my wallet and phone, two items I never leave the house without, all in one.

    I've noticed a few complaints from previous reviewers here...since Apple moved the noise cancelling mic to the back of the phone, calls can sound muffled if the cover is folded all the way over. There is a dead simple fix for this: don't fold it all the way over!! Simply leave a slight gap, which is easy to do, and problem solved. Since the case is made of leather, and is stiff at first, the cover won't fully close when laid flat. Like anything made of leather it will soften and become more flexible over time. After about two weeks of use mine closes completely, even while holding six cards.
    I highly recommend this product to any iPhone user.
