The BookBook is one of the most popular and highly rated cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S of all time, and now the BookBook is finally available as a case for the iPhone 5.
If you haven’t heard of the BookBook before, let me fill you in. This premium case protects and disguises your iPhone 5 with the look and feel of a pocket-sized leather-bound book. The beautiful design and hand distressed leather produces a look unmatched by any other iPhone case on the market.
The BookBook is practical too. Inside, you’ll find two slots – one on the left for your photo ID and credit cards, and one on the right for your iPhone. You rarely leave home without your phone and your wallet, and with the BookBook they’ll be in one place.
The BookBook also provides considerable protection – the genuine leather construction ensures that your iPhone 5 won’t be scratched or scuffed, and even drops or knocks will be dissipated away from your iPhone 5.
Even with all this protection, it’s still easy to access your iPhone – once opened, there’s no frame or anything else in the way of the buttons and ports. There’s also a cutout for the camera on the back, so you can still take photographs as easily as you could before.
The BookBook for the iPhone 5 is shipping now from Mobile Fun in Black – we’ll have a brown version available later too.

If you’re looking for a touch of style and class for your iPad Mini, then look no further than the Twelve South BookBook. As the name suggests, the BookBook is a cover for your iPad Mini with the appearance of a leather-bound novel. The high-class covering both protects and disguises, adding a touch of the analogue to your digital life.
If you’re worried about someone walking off with your iPad Mini, then having a subtle disguise can be an ingenious solution to the problem. With the BookBook wrapped around your iPad Mini, a potential assailant will likely not even realise that there’s an iPad inside, even if it’s right under their noise. When sitting on your kitchen table, guests will think it’s a vintage piece of literature instead of the technological trimph that lurks within.
Of course, the iPad Mini also serves another practical role – it protects your iPad Mini from a wide range of possible hazards. Not least of these is the danger of scratches – with the BookBook ensconced around your iPad Mini, it’ll be fully covered from any keys or other sharp objects that are likely to leave a costy and frustrating scratch in your iPad. The BookBook’s leather finish also provides a good amount of padding that ensures minor impacts don’t do any damage to your iPad Mini.
The BookBook also has another clever feature that you might not have guessed. It can also transform into a stand, allowing you to use your iPad Mini at a low angle suitable for playing games or writing emails, or a higher angle that’s better for watching videos. The adjustable tassle inside allows a wide range of possible orientations, ensuring you can find the precise angle that is right for any possible position.
Despite its deep functionality, this isn’t a heavy or thick case – it’s just 212 grams in all, adding minimal bulk to your iPad Mini. And with the protection, style and stand that this case provides you’ll always be glad that you brought your BookBook.

We quite often get asked what the best selling iPhone 4/4S cases are why. Usually we find that quality, style and hard wearing protection lead to a phone case being popular, therefore it’s no surprise that our current top three iPhone 4/4S cases all have protection and style at heart:
Twelve South BookBook Case
We’ve spoken about this case before but the popularity of the BookBook iPhone 4 case just doesn’t seem to be waning.
Manufactured from top quality leather, this case isn’t just a case! Inside the BookBook iPhone case is a wallet with the ability to store three cards. There’s even a handy ID slot so that you can show your ID without having to rummage around to find it.
Styled to perfection to look like a vintage work of fiction, the BookBook case is highly protective, stylish and made from the best quality materials, so it’s no surprise it features in our top three.
The case protects every angle of your iPhone when it’s not in use, even the screen, helping to keep it looking newer for longer. All of the features of your iPhone 4/4S are still accessible whilst in the BookBook but in order to use the camera you just have to pull the red tab to move your iPhone a quarter of an inch higher, meaning the lens is free.
Slim and sleek, the BookBook hardly adds any bulk to your iPhone, so it’s still a pocketable case, with full access to your iPhone. No longer will you need to take a bag to the shops, simply pick up the BookBook and your keys and you’re good to go.
Griffin Survivor Case
The daddy case of protection, the Griffin Survivor has proved its worth many a time. From being blown up on The Gadget Show, to being ran over and thrown from building, this case has been tested to the max.
This case is made to both UK and US Military standards so it means business and can protect your iPhone from even the most extreme of conditions: wind, rain, dirt, dust, vibrations and anything else Mother Nature has to throw at it.
Built from a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame clad in rugged and shock absorbing silicone, this case even comes with a built in screen protector, so your screen is always protected but still completely accessible.
One of the great features about this case is that it has hinged plugs for all the cut-outs like the headphone socket and charging port to ensure that they’re fully protected and accessible at all times.
The perfect case for those who frequently play sports, work outside or simply enjoy the outdoors, the Griffin Survivor case can face any challenge you throw at it, without allowing any damage to come to your iPhone.
LifeProof Indestructible Case
The LifeProof iPhone 4/4S case range are pretty new to Mobile Fun but already they’ve proved to be a sell out range.
Available in either black or white, these cases are not only up to UK and US military standards, with an IP-68 water and dust protection rating but do so without adding a large amount of bulk to your phone. In fact they only add 1.5mm of thickness to your iPhone and add a whole load of protection in return.
Built to withstand the forces of snow, water, dust, dirt, drops, bumps and anything else life might throw at your iPhone, the LifeProof iPhone 4 cases truly do give you the freedom to use your iPhone anywhere.
Like the Griffin Survivor, this case comes complete with a built in screen protector – an AR-coated optical glass lens to be precise. This screen protection means that you can take your iPhone up to two metres underwater without causing any damage to it. You can capture videos and images like never before.
A stunning, sleek case with plugs for all the ports, so they’re still accessible, the LifeProof case really deos prove that protection doesn’t have to equal bulk.

BookBook Case for iPhone 4
Still a rare item around town, the BookBook iPhone 4 case can be found in the hands of most scarf and glasses wearing hipsters. Artists in all forms, be they painters, photography buffs or advertising campaign brainstormers prefer this Book Book all-in-one vintage leather case and wallet over any other iPhone holder.
Not being a hipster myself, I still find the BookBook practical and visually attractive really. And if you, like me, know the phrase “wallet, keys, phone” all too well (coupled with a series of gestures and patting of pockets) then you’ll see how useful this is for someone that tends to forget things at home. I’m glad that I can keep my phone and wallet in the same place, as they are the most important things (and sadly, most commonly used) when out in town.
The BookBook for iPhone 4 really is designed for the iPhone 4/4S. By that I mean that it has special cutouts for the wide array of ports and features. It also has a pretty sturdy build, which means it can protect your credit cards and driving licence from bending.
All in all, this little case is full of character. The originality of its old book look really appeals to those in search of something different and its phone case/wallet combination adds real-life practicality. It’s good looking and practical, what more could you want from a phone case? Sure, I agree it would be great if the wallet came with a £50,000 limit credit card but other than that, it’s awesome.
I clearly love it, but what do you think? Too artsy? Great? Let us know.

Let’s have a look at one of our favourite iPhone accessories: Twelve South’s BookBook case.
The BookBook case is extremely well crafted from the finest leather, and it looks as good in person as it does in these photos. The soft, supple frame offers a unique look and the hard cover will keep your iPhone safe. Every time we’ve got out with the BookBook, we’ve had nothing but compliments about it, and our customers have had a similar experience.
As well as serving as a protective cover, the BookBook case is also a handy wallet. There are two credit card slots, a photo ID slot and a rear slot for cash. You can quickly remove your photo ID using the included thumb slide, too. It’s a beautiful package that’ll keep your wallet close to hand, and it works the other way too — you’ll never lose your wallet in the couch again, as now your Find My Phone app will locate your wallet as well.
For more information on this fashionable case for iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, why not check out the BookBook case product page? And as always, if you’ve got any questions or comments then please let us know via the comments below.
