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.

    Purchasing (which 60 bucks for a phone case is absurd) the left portion of
    The case which holds the credit cards actually made an impression on the glass
    Of the phone causing a permanent scratch. Twelve South also replaced the case for
    Me after the right plastic piece holding the phone cracked and now since its 1.5 years
    Old the stitching fell away exposing the cardboard which keeps the leather stiff.
    It's too bad it fell apart as I have book book for my Mac and have not one complaint.
    I give it 2 stars

  • attractive and nice, but doesn't close

    This is a very attractive case, which is why I bought it. The leather feels very nice in my hand.

    The major issue with this c This is a very attractive case, which is why I bought it. The leather feels very nice in my hand.

    The major issue with this case is that it doesn't close--there's no closure or clasp on it at all. Which means that the display always shows, and, it just has a not-closed look to it, all the time--not something you want to hold your money and credit cards in, along with your iPhone. I used two hair bands to hold it closed--one along the spine, one attached to that to loop around it, and that helps, but I don't understand why they did not include some sort of clasp/closure.

    Also, the plastic holder for the phone itself does not quite hold the phone in tight enough, and my phone did fall out once, so I'm not completely faithful it will be protected if I drop it.

    I do like it though in many ways, especially aesthetic, as most holders on the market are either very ugly, or provide almost no protection. I'm not sure yet whether I would buy one again or not. If they add a closure/clasp, then, yes. Otherwise, not sure.

    I used it for less than a year. First the leather wears off the hard plastic, then the stitches come undone and now the everything I used it for less than a year. First the leather wears off the hard plastic, then the stitches come undone and now the everything is delaminating. The 4s version was ok with some faults and lasted 2 years ... this version for the 5s.. in one word.. BLOWS.
