Flip Books, like Small Books, are usually under five inches square, although there are also a few examples of full-sized Flip Books in our inventory. Flip Books are hand held, thumb-activated animations that take place on the rapidly fanned pages of a book. Drawings, photographs, or some combination of the two are slightly altered from page to page, creating the effect of fluid movement or change when viewed in quick succession. Reading a Flip Book is like watching a little movie, and there are as many approaches to making a flip book as there are to a making a short film. Some are narrative, some are surreal, some are self-referential, some experiment with formal conventions of the medium, and nearly all play with or to an audience�s expectations.
