Like most people, I take my phone accessories seriously, especially when it comes to phone cases. Let’s face it; our phones have become an extension of us. We feel a little more confident, and a little more stylish when our phones are dressed just as well as we are. Like most people who got the iPhone 5 delivered to our doors the day it came out, I was supremely disappointed by the lack of cases available for the phone. However, after a few months and a lot of patience, I was extremely pleased when I stumbled onto the Book Book from Twelve South.
I've been testing the Book Book for four weeks now, and from my experience, it’s one of the greatest cases ever. It’s a two edged sword, a luxury high end phone case, combined with the functionality of a wallet. It really doesn't seem like rocket science does it? It’s such a simple concept, but where other companies have failed, Twelve South has managed to succeed. From the luxury grain of the leather, to the quality of the construction, the personality of its appearance, the Book Book isn't a case that you’ll tire of within a few weeks, in fact, I love it just as much as the day I got it.
Right out of the box, the smell of leather instilled confidence, and assured me that the Book Book was in a class all its own. Nothing else looks like it, nothing else feels like it, and no other case has managed to impress me more than the Book Book. Quite honestly, after four weeks of use, I was expecting a little wear and tear, but after close examination, not one thread has loosened, and every nick and scrape on the leather only adds to the cases character. This is quality at its finest. Comparing the Book Book to any other case, is much like comparing a Honda to a Bentley. Sure both will get you get you from point A to point B, but why settle for mere existence when you can live in style. Side by side any other cases that we’ve tested, the Book Book is a Picasso, an absolute masterpiece for which there are not substitutes.
Up until recently, I had a serious case of the G.C.G.W.S., better known by most doctors as the “George Constanza Giant Wallet Syndrome”, a problem which has been remedied thanks to the Book Book. Sure it’s not the cheapest case on the market, but as with anything in life, you get what you pay for. If it’s compliments you’re looking for, the Book Book will get them. If it’s functionality you’re looking for, the Book Book has it. If it’s luxury you’re looking for, look no further. Twelve South has a winner, and from the looks of it, they’re onto something big. They've managed to bundle everything I need and want into a quality high-end product that stands out among a sea of cheap imitators and inferiors.
With a growing line of unique innovative products, Twelve South knows how to dress your favorite Mac products in style, and give them the level of protection that they deserve. Most recently, they've introduced the SurfacePad for iPhone, a minimalist approach to protect your iPhone from the daily hazards of life. Make no mistake…this is a brand worth watching, and we look forward to seeing what they come up with next. Thanks Twelve South for a job well done!
