Flipbooks

Flipbook.info provides a detailed history of flipbooks, complete with animated sequences which demonstrate the workings of such books. Other sections of the website are entitled 'Typology' which groups flipbooks into categories including cinema, sport and eroticism; and 'Viewers', providing an historical account of some of the devices introduced to view flipbooks. There is a searchable database of over 500 flipbooks, a regularly updated blog, with archives available dating back to 2005, and a links page.
