    Two years of use and it still works and has more character too!

    • Written by from Evergreen

    This case has been perfect. 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

    • Written by from Bossier City

    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!

    Excellent product!

    • Written by from Alliston

    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.

    By far, the most functional and fashionable iphone case out there

    • Written by from BOCA RATON

    This case is exceptional. I've tried many cases and they all break. You CAN NOT break this case. I've dropped my phone tons - the phone has NEVER gotten a scratch. It is gorgeous leather and the phone is framed in unlike the earlier versions which I also loved. I read the review where the customer said their leather got too worn but that's a little hard to believe. At any rate, Twelve South will happily replace the case _ i have dealt with them for other issues. They are a good company. I can't wait to get the iphone 6 and the new case!!!!

    Best wallet case ever!!!!

    • Written by from rydal

    I just got this case for my B-Day and it is awesome by far the best case i have ever had. It is not that thick and has a decent amount of protection. The BookBook case get high praises. If you want a wallet phone case this is one of the only ones with ID slot and and pocket for cash. This is defiantly the one to get.

    Great idea!

    • Written by from MAULDIN

    This wallet/case is great! In addition to the comfort of not having a wallet in your back pocket it also allows a more comfortable ride on my motorcycle. After about 2 years it has finally started to dhow some wear & tear, but as much as I use my phone this is to be expected. I have had many complements on the case and a few people have bought it because they liked mine so much. I would recommend this wallet/case to everyone.

    Twelve South BoobBook Case for iphone 5s

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    I bought this case to protect my new Apple iphone5s from getting scratched or dropping it and having it crack. I will say it does do both (so far so good!) The iphone5s does fit perfectly in the case. The front cover doesn't want to stay down so at night I turn it upside down. I think it will become more flexible as I open and close it 20 times a day! It's a nice quality leather and has that 'vintage' matte finish. I wish it didn't have the title down the spine. I hope it wears off soon.
    There is NO problem with the Ringtones sound not sounding like your volume settings. I have my Sound all the way UP in the setting and it sounds the same as not being in a case. Basically, I'm very happy with Twelve South BookBook Case for iphone 5/iphone5s. ~

    Step Up and Step Out

    • Written by from Cornwall

    This is a 5 star rating, of course, after having used it for a half dozen months and having had a 4 Book for a couple of years or more. This one is perfect. Thank you! Why? Not really bulky, when you think it can carry your major card or two, your medical information, fishing license and an emergency $5 bill, plus a cash card and a drug card, if you're in to drugs.

    Bonus factor for those who always complain about how hard it is to take their phone out a case to insert in to some other specialty item, like a bike ride system or a music system such as Bose has to offer: it's a very simple thing to do, you just take it out and press it back in to the binder. It's a miracle, and a very useful one at that, as opposed to other miracles, which do not seem to move me much, having no utilitarian value at all. This case is excellent. I would buy it for you if you loved me.

    Amazing Case!!

    • Written by from Rocky River

    I have have this case with my iPhone5 for a year now and absolutely love it!! However, there are a couple of things to mention after reading some of the other reviews.

    I have heard that the case won't close all the way. This case is leather and just needs broken in. It easily holds my 6 Cards, License, a couple of receipts and some cash and lays flat without issue. It fits nicely in my back pocket without any discomfort.

    As for all of the comments of people not being able to hear you or your voice being muffled while using the case. It is not a case issue, it is a phone issue. There are three mics on an iPhone 5. When you open the case and flip it back to use the phone it covers the little mic between the camera lens and flash. I think it is to help with noise cancellation. When it is covered it cancels out part of your own voice making it sound muffled. It took me a while to figure this out, but once I did, I just don't fold the case all the way back when talking. I now have no issues.

    I used to misplace my wallet all the time, forget my license, forget cards or cash. Since getting this case I am never without these necessities! I actually got on today to buy one for my wife. I can't imagine any other case being as functional and looking so good in the process. I more than recommend:)

    Great Case

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Great case, very handy too. Have had for about a week and is holding up fine. Takes some getting use to when texting/calling as the the front flap does not completely bend back (at least I won't bend it all the way). i find that it holding 4 cards is more than enough for when going out. It does look like you are reading a little bible when using...maybe that is a good thing and people will leave you alone when using. I did purchase an extra screen protector to use as well.

    Unique and practical iphone case

    • Written by from WEST HAVEN

    This is my 3rd BookBook Case for my 3rd iphone. This case works for my iPhone 5S. One HUGE improvement is that they added an opening for the camera -- my BookBook case for the iPhone 4 did not have one. I have had lots of compliments on this case. It also holds your driver's license and a few credit cards. It is Leather, so it takes a little break-in, but gets better with age.

    12 SOUTH BOOK BOOK - BEST IPHONE 5 COVER MADE!

    • Written by from Linden

    Beautiful distressed leather - looks better each day as it gets more wear. Very convenient - to have my iPhone 5, driver license, Amex, and metro card in one place. The clear pocket is great for photo id's - so I don't have to remove it continuously. Overall I am extremely satisfied and recommend this product 100%.

    Love my BookBook

    • Written by from Memphis

    I purchased a Vintage Brown BookBook along with my iPhone 5, and I love it. I often get compliments on its looks, and I love not carrying a wallet - BookBook and keys and I'm set. Everything is a little snug when you first get it, but give it time - it is leather, after all.

    I'm a heavy user of my iPhone - lots of music, video, talking, texting, photo taking and in-and-out of my pockets. The BookBook has never presented a problem for any of these. After a few months, the leather has started to scuff a little with all the use, but that just adds to the vintage feel for me. I've had a few drops, and though I always hold my breath a little since it isn't a huge 'protection' case, it's always protected my phone fine.

    The single negative I have is that some of the thin leather that covers the phone clip has started to peel. I do wish there was a way to carry cash, but I don't think that could be accomplished without it becoming prohibitively bulky. I recommend the BookBook, especially if you like the vintage look and feel.

    Really love this case.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    First off, I'd like to say that everywhere i go i get comments on this case. I should sell them on the side since I'm asked so much times...what and where i got it. High quality build, durable and holds iPhone tightly. The camera hole on the back is a nice touch. I use an app called" key chain" to rid myself of all the store member cards and freeing myself of the Castanza wallet. I used to forget either my phone or my wallet so having them together has been a wonderful change. The leather is very tight when new but after a few months of use its brakes-in nicely. (Like a baseball glove) Overall I love the case and it has protected my iPhone 5 from many falls. The only improvement would be to perhaps add a leather strap to lock it shut when closed. This would keep it closed if it were to fall in the open position.(protecting phone) I have a BookBook for my macbook pro as well as my iPad and together they look amazing. Again...everywhere you go you will get comments on how cool they are!

    Great case no complaints

    • Written by from Irvington

    I love this case! People are alway complimenting me when they see it. They think its a book or a Bible. I have NO problems with people hearing me or I hearing them when having a conversation. As far as the comment stating that it doesn't close, it does close after putting a few business or credit cards in the wallet side, which what it was made for.

    Goodbey purse, Hello Twelve South BookBook Case for iPhone 5.

    • Written by from PENSACOLA

    I fell in love the moment I saw it......purchased it within 5 min of that. The leather is great quality, it's made very well and will last without falling apart.....and the convenience of it.....well, need I say more?? The best thing to have when running an errand and you don't want to drag along your 20lb purse. An evening on the town?....just stick it in your pocket. Men that goes for you too.

    Wonderful way to store the essentials together

    • Written by from Boston

    I'm thrilled with this iphone wallet! I previously had a knockoff version that wouldn't close and could only hold two cards, which just didn't work for me. I'm glad that I took the chance on ordering this, even though it was more expensive. The leather smell is wonderful, but the most important part for me is that the spine is crafted like an actual book. It is stiff and already made to account for a full wallet, so it will lie closed even when it has cards and cash in it.

    The full wallet fits in the breast pocket of my coats and the back pocket of my jeans, so I can always carry the essentials without needing an entire purse.
