TwelveSouth, the same company that brought you the BookBook MacBook casings has decided to shrink the design down with the iPhone 4 in mind. So instead of looking like you’re carrying around a huge tome, you now look like you’re carrying around a smaller tome which judging by its looks could totally pass off as a Bible; in fact, load your iPhone 4 with a Bible app and it wouldn’t be too far from the truth.

It looks pretty good and very classy from afar, although some reports are indicating that the “spine” of the casing is made out of distressed embossed leather which sort of cheapens the whole effect. When flipped open it has slots where you can keep some cards such as prepaid reload cards or even iTunes gift cards.

Granted that the old world design is sort of ironic given the modern nature of a smartphone, it has to be one of the more unique iPhone casings we’ve seen to date and it looks like it could go well with the rest of your antique furniture or possibly steampunk designs.

It is available from TwelveSouth for $60.
