ABOUT


 

Artists Wendy Marvel and Mark Arnon Rosen
create mechanical flip books.

 
 
 

"Whenever we displayed our art, we were inundated with people requesting a kit version. In October 2012 we made it a reality. Teaming up with inventor/product designer Steven Goldstein, we created FlipBooKit.

Packaged as an affordable DIY kit, FlipBooKit allows anyone to make either a manual or motorized flip book from a video or set of photos, creating a one-of-a-kind tactile kinetic art piece.

Purchase your own kit at flipbookit.com

Did you ever draw in the corners of a book to create an image that animated as you "flipped" through the pages? Or been to a penny arcade and hand cranked a machine to watch a movie thru a small opening?


 
 
 

Our Motorized Flipbooks

Instead of a crank on the side, there’s a tiny motor that rotates the spindle and flexible cards flip by giving the illusion of moving pictures that tell a little story in a scene

OUR WORK


Here’s the real secret of our craft: magic. Our greatest satisfaction lies in watching wonder and joy overtake people when they crank the handle on a flipbook. Adults giggle like children, and kids scowl, openmouthed, with intense concentration as they try to figure out how it works. No matter how many times you create the illusion of motion, you want to do it again and again.
