The most amazing case Ive ever had period! And not just iphone case, but best case on any phone!
It is the twelve south book book case. Here is the link, a bit pricey? Sure, but not to bad when you consider what all it does. If your like me and hate having to grab your wallet and your phone. This may be the answer for you.

Yes it is real leather, it breaks in like a comfy old pair of leather shoes/gloves.
My wife loves hers, its like carrying a Moleskine with you, not bad at all. And for me it beats a wallet and phone in a case.
And this may seem weird but it smells great. Lol

I like it! I admit to being a little bit of a case fanatic though! :o This might be just the thing I'm looking for to throw in my smaller bags that don't hold everything. You ladies know what I mean!
@Alli... LOL @ the "Steve Jobs Bible" reference!!!

Admitted the no camera hole is a mild pain.
I did see a picture of a book book with a camera cut out. Not sure when it drops, but if thats a deal breaker for you, it may behouve you to wait. Ive got it down to a science now for getting it slid up for pics. Lol
@allie what is the black book? As i am a huge case fanatic and firmly believe you can never have too many ;^J

I asked a few retailers in my area and they all said probably not going to carry it. Said it was to expensive and too much of a specialty item to risk carrying them.
I say take the leap, i deff think you wont be disappointed. If so shoot me a PM and ill buy it from you.

Yes, the first few days it didnt close totally, almost but not quite. But now it folds closed. Just dont put every card you have and a roll of $100's an you will be fine.
I keep 4 cards one being my license and a small bit of cash. And all is well.

I waited for them to retool the Little Black Book before buying one because no camera cutout was a deal breaker. But I do prefer the look of the Bookbook, and if they release one with a camera cutout, I'm on it!

Because it's not a camera case first and foremost.
Its really not a huge inconvenience to take pictures, adds maybe a second or two to the over all time. And if that is too long to snag that impromptu photo, you must walk around with your phone out and camera open at all times lol
And when looking at the little black book, the strap runs right across the camera opening.
@allie, it (the LBB) really looks like a thicker moleskine book when all closed up..

The strap only runs across the camera of the LBB when it's closed. You have to open it to take a picture, so the camera is free. My thought is that if I wanted a pouch case, I'd have been using a pouch case. I don't want to have to take the phone out of it for anything - even taking a picture.

My main dislike with the LBB is that its JUST a case, i like the available room for my days necessities without having to carry a wallet. And the actual feel of the book book is great, soft supple leather. I get your concern over the (pouch) factor. but it really isn't a pouch as the only thing you really need to even move it for is to snap a pic.
But that is indeed why they make many different styles.. And i am currently trying to find the place where i saw the book book with a camera cutout.
This is like the one i saw the other night.
Except the camera cutout was much cleaner and uniform.
