Pad&Quill’s Little Pocket Book For iPhone 5

The iPhone isn’t the only thing that looks more handsome when it gets taller and thinner. Bookbindery cases get better looking too, as you can see with event he quickest glance and Pad&Quill’s new Little Pocket Book. Stretched lengthwise and squashed a little depth-wise, it’s “thinnest we have ever made,” says P&Q honcho Brian Holmes.

The cases are wood-framed for lightness and toughness, and come covered in stitched leather. And great news for our resident iPhone wallet fetishist Killian Bell: the cases have pockets on the inside cover for ID, credit cards and cash.

I’m more of a bareback kind of guy when it comes to phones (but then I own a Samsung, which I hate), but if I was into cases I’d probably have this on my list. I’ve also tested a bunch of P&Q cases over the years and found them to be top notch in design and build quality. In short, this case will easily outlast the iPhone within, probably by many years.

Available now for pre-order (just like the iPhone 5!)

    And for $50 Apple will give me a brand new iPhone 5. I’m a case-free person too, Mr. Sorrel.

    $50 for a replacement iPhone? Pretty sure it’s $100.

    Thanks for the heads-up on this. Went to the site, and it looks really great. I usually prefer minimal protection, but the Little Pocket Book is interesting and elegant.

    One thing: On the site, there is this note in the Details section: ” *does not support flash in order to preserve a book-like esthetic.”

    However, the photo of the back clearly shows the cutout accommodating the LED flash as well. They either abandoned the idea of the flash cutout as stated, or, more likely, redesigned back in (as in the photo), but forgot to delete the note. Hate to think I’d have to remove the phone if I wanted to use flash.

    Again, thanks for finding new and unusual things. Cult of Mac is just the best!

    No, it’s definitely $50 with AppleCare+. $50 and it’s brand new. Break it for any reason at all.
