I do not typically leave reviews but I feel this product has been unfairly marked done by others where they have obviously received a fake from marketplace sellers. Those negative reviews should have gone against the seller and not the product, and I hope this review redresses the balance in part. If you are interested in this product make sure you select Amazon as the seller from buying options to guarantee the product you receive is a genuine TwelveSouth product.

The iphone 4s is a quality piece of equipment and putting it in a plastic or rubber cheapy case just seemed to cheapen the phone. Also many of the cases do not adequately protect the screen leaving it at risk to scratches from keys and otehr objects in my pocket. Holding the iphone in my previous Griffen Elan Form case Griffin Elan Form Graphite Case for iPhone 4 / 4S was nasty and I doubt it had the protection it needed. I decided to get a leather case to match the style of the phone but did not want a star trek flippy styley case or a pouch. The bookbook is, well, like a book, made from a good quality thick leather that holds the phone firmly in place, I feel confident that my phone will be well protected in most situations of accidental butter fingers.

I was worried about the size of the bookbook but actually was surprised to find it is still quite compact and still easily fits in my front jeans pocket. Dimensions are approx 12cm x 7cm x 2cm.

What the bookbook is not:

1. It is not the perfect case for you if you take a lot of photos with your iphone. The phone does need to be pushed up an inch before a photo can be taken due to the lack of an aperture in the back of the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars *** BE WARNED & USE CAUTION *** 3 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
After reading some of the reviews here concerning counterfeit Bookbook product, I ordered from the Amazon.co.uk to be sure I could trust that they would send me a REAL product.

When I did receive it. I knew immediately that it was fake. The printing on the Bookbook packaging looked like a color photocopy - blurry & dull. The box itself loooked like it was carved with a stanley knife and poorly constructed, it also was wrapped in a clear plastic bag.

Printed copyright information was from 2011.

The product itself was a little more convincing but still 100% deception. It sure smelt like leather but the spine was badly cut, the Book Book branding was misaligned. The actual iPhone compartment itself was badly stitched to the cover - after putting my iPhone into it, the ear piece section wasn't event in-line with the dimensions of the device.

Furthermore, the bevelled stamping of both the the volume button area and "12" logo on the rear cover was badly done.

In the end, I printed out a returns form to send back to Amazon.co.uk for a full refund. In the mean-time, I ordered a REAL Bookbook directly from the Twelve South website - to be 100% sure that I was getting the real deal.

After shopping at Amazon for well over ten years, this is the first experience where I have received a counterfeit item from Amazon, and am very disappointed. Never the less, it has been a learning experience for me and I advise anyone buy a Twelve South product via Amazon to use extreme caution.

I gave a high star rating because I do love the (REAL) end product, that I ordered from Twelve South. My advice, if you want the real deal, order from [...]


You have been warned :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, booth wallet and protection 25 Oct 2011
Love my BookBook.
It looks really cool, and it is nice to have both the wallet and phone in the same place. Specially in summertime when you don't hav jackets with deep pockets.
Only drawback i can come up with is that you have to pusch out the phone a bit when you want to take pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great leather case for iPhone 21 Nov 2011
I bought this for my iPhone 4S and all i can say is it's wonderful. I keep two cards inside it; they are easy to access and use when pying with my debit card and I have no problems taking the phone out whenever anyone wants to see it, as they invariably do with a new iPhone.

Simple, sleek and great protection. Definitely worth the money. I have had many comments on how cool this looks and one girl even said it was worth buying an iPhone simply to get this case.

Can't rate it highly enough.

One final thing, to take pictures simply pull out the red tab at the top and push your phone up with your thumb. You don;t need to take it all the way out to get a great shot. I much prefer this than having an unsightly hole in the rear of my case which would only get filled with pocket lint or dirt from a table.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the all-leather case it appears to be 20 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
What a disappointment this case is. It appears at first sight to be leather but the spine turns out to be pink plastic painted with brown paint which soon flakes off in daily use in the pocket. I have used this case for a week now and the now pink spine is really ugly and lets down the good quality leather front, rear and interior. I was prepared to accept the design limitations highlighted in other reviews (lack of space for cards, cash and overall bulk in the pocket) but I have to admit defeat: I cannot accept the ghastly pink plastic spine. For £50 this case is very over-priced and not worth your money.

Its very nice looking and does protect your iPhone, but also makes it much more heavy and ruining the slim elegance of the iPhone. I changed to Surfacepad.

The item is of superb quality. It looks and feels great. Maybe too clunky to use as a wallet with cards etc . I prefer to use just as a phone case. Very happy with the purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Leaves a waxy residue on the screen.
Need to remove the phone for pics.
Cumbersome when making calls.
Looks good but went back to a simple band around the edge.
