First, it might help to explain what a flip book is. Think back to the days when you began doodling on the side of your notebook. One page of a ball bouncing...the next of the ball slightly lower on the page....then hitting the ground....the next page bouncing a little higher. This went on for a while until you flipped the pages back and watched the ball bounce up and down via animation.
The flip book has deep roots - first coming on the scene in September of 1868, when a British printer by the name of John Barnes Linnet patented the form of animation under the name kineograph, or "moving picture." Fast forward and some people might remember seeing this version of the flip book in penny arcades and amusement parks. Flip books have long been used by advertisers and marketers - from prizes in Cracker Jack boxes in the early 1900's to novelty giveaways for automobile and snack food companies in the 1960's-70's.
