At Fliptomania our mission, and our passion, is to bring the classic world of flip book animation into the 21st century, merging artistry, creativity, technology AND humor to create a world of flipbook designs. From time-lapse photography of science and nature's greatest wonders to irreverent (but loving) versions of some of the art world's greatest works, Fliptomania flipbooks generate wonder, amazement, and amusement.
If you are over a certain age you are probably already familiar with flipbooks. In fact, people tell us all the time "I used to draw flipbooks in the edges of my school books". For those a bit younger, flip books may seem like a "new" retro technology. Regardless of your current age, flip books may well have been your introduction into the world of movies and moving images. Flipbooks rely on the principle of “persistence of vision” to turn a series of still images into a movie or animation – just like the most complex and modern IMAX films.
Everyone loves Fliptomania flipbooks. 9 years old or 90, a flip book is guaranteed to bring a smile. You don't even need to speak English – they are little silent movies that play in your hand. Flipbooks are a perfect inexpensive gift – whatever your friends or loved ones like – from Van Gogh to dinosaurs to butterflies to Elvis to "The Wizard of Oz" to trains – we've got the flipbook for them.
And not only are flipbooks a great gift, they can also be a great greeting or gift card. Who doesn't want a robot shooting a “Happy Birthday!” beam from its visor?
This website has movies of every one of our flipbooks. Have fun exploring!
Just for Kids
Kids love flipbooks, and flipbooks can be educational as well as fun. We've got a variety of make-your-own flipbook kits for kids. These simple DIY kits teach the basic building blocks of movies and jump-start kids into the world of animation. And if you've got a whole group of kids to entertain, our Activity Packs contain the makings of 25 flipbooks. These are great for school groups, art workshops, camps, church groups, scout groups – you name it.
Just For Business
Over the years we've created many custom books for businesses and cultural organizations. From time-lapse of a new museum building coming into existence to the first “splash-hit” home run at the San Francisco Giants' new ballpark – we can create something special for you. Or, we can design a custom cover on one of our existing flipbooks – whichever is just right for your needs.
