Mere minutes after the iPhone 5 was finally revealed to an upgrade-starved public, the case makers of the world started their barrage of pitches for new ways to protect the device. Most aren't worth a second glance, but damned if Miniot has created an absolutely stunning book-type case that both protects and enhances the beauty of Apple's latest handset.
Instead of cheap plastic or silicone, the Miniot Book is made from two types of handcrafted wood and perfectly hugs three side of the iPhone 5. The fourth side is protected by a slotted wooden hinge that allows the case's cover to flip back around on itself for use as a stand, or a sun shade while snapping photos. Unfortunately the lack of cheap materials means the Miniot Book will set you back a hefty $US143. But why would you want to wrap your device in anything but the very best?
