Flip Books


Flip books are essentially a primitive form of animation. Like motion pictures, they rely on persistence of vision to create the illusion that continuous motion is being seen rather than a series of discontinuous images being exchanged in succession. The first flip book appeared in September, 1868, when it was patented by John Barnes Linnett under the name ‘kineograph’ (moving picture). They were the first form of animation to employ a linear sequence of images rather than circular (as in the older phenakistoscope). Santiago Melazzini has produced a huge range of flip books, including the title pictured above. See the full range on Amazon:
