Pros & Cons
BookBook for iPhone 5 is a hybrid wallet and iPhone case that mimics a pocket-sized, vintage book. Open the beautifully-designed leather book and you’ll see a wallet on the left and a leather wrapped frame that securely holds your iPhone 5 on the right. BookBook for iPhone 5 has two hard-back covers and a rigid spine to protect your iPhone against dings and bruises. You get an additional layer of protection in the form of a disguise. Available in your choice of Classic Black and Vintage Brown, each BookBook is hand-distressed using high quality leather.
This vintage-style book has a convenient ID window and four slots for your debit/credit cards, reward cards and cash. The ID window has a convenient thumb slide so you can quickly take your ID out at the airport. You'll have easy access to all ports and buttons as well and it also has a built-in camera hole so you can quickly capture photos with the iPhone 5 iSight camera.
Some reviewers find it hard and inconvenient to talk on the phone without taking it of out of the cover. A few users would like to see more pockets for cards and cash.
Overall, BookBook for iPhone 5 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.
