The iPhone 5 is nigh, and its relatively minor cosmetic changes mean that the entire accessory ecosystem gets to start churning out a new generation of products once again. We’ll soon be flooded by new docks, clocks, robots, and teddy bears that work with the newest iPhone. Of the first batch of these, we really like the above Miniot Book. It’s made from hand crafted wood and gives your phone a kind of organic chic that we feel serves as a good counterbalance to the phone’s industrial coldness. A slotted hinge along the side lets you turn one side of the cover into an angled stand so it’s kind of dual-purpose as well.
Of course, the words “hand-crafted wood” don’t typically find themselves in the same sentence as the word “cheap” (well… except here), and the Minion Book is no exception: $143 once it’s launched.
