Pad & Quill is well-known for their lineup of rich looking handmade book-style cases for the iPhone and iPad.
Now they’ve just announced pre-orderability for the two new models for the iPhone5, shipping next month.
The Little Pocket Book for iPhone® 5 aims to be the perfect wallet/iPhone 5 case combination. Redesigned to be 40% thinner then their original Little Pocket Book case, this iPhone 5 model uses a special Baltic birch that allows the wood tray that holds and protects your iPhone 5 to be only 9.4 mm thick, yet it is their strongest frame to date.
Genuine leather inside and out, including a hand-stitched cover, the case features multiple credit card slots, as well a windowed ID pocket and a pocket for cash and/or receipts. It also has a cutout on the camera and an elastic band to help keep it closed. And an interior-matching bookmark to help you remove your phone from the case.
The case is available in 4 different color combinations including Mahogany Brown/Deep Sea Blue, Mahogany Brown/Forest Green, Onyx Black/Mahogany Red, Onyx Black/French Roast. Normally $59.99, this is available at a special pre-order price of $54.99.
All in all, this case looks like it addresses every one of the shortcomings that I found with the Twelve South BookBook case I had been using on my iPhone 4, so I’m really excited.
This case offers more of a Moleskine journal-like look and instead of the leather wallet-style organization on the left-hand side of the case, the inside is made from real bookbindery cloth. A pocket can also be added to the inside for an additional $4.99.
The cover is handmade with Spanish bonded leather and comes only in black, but with a choice of 5 interior colors including: French Roast, Camden Blue, Cranberry Red, Field Green and Plum. It too features an elastic strap closure as well as a cutout for the camera and the same strong Baltic birch wooden frame.
This case sells for $39.99 or $44.98 (with pocket).
All of Pad & Quill’s cases come with a 30-day money back guarantee and if you order two or more items you’ll get free shipping. If you follow Pad & Quill on Facebook, you can get a free 10% off coupon as well.
The tough decision, is which Little Pocket Book for iPhone® 5 to pre-order. I really like the Mahogany Brown exterior, but the French Roast interior is only available with the Onyx Black exterior…decisions, decisions.
