There are 2 kinds of flipbooks:
- printed booklets that simulate animation;
- online publications.
The offline flipbook is a book with a series of visuals that differ gradually from one page to another. And when you quickly turn the pages, the visuals appear to move (or animate) by simulating motion.
The first flip book came in September, 1868, when it was patented by John Barnes Linnett under the name kineograph ("moving picture"). Flipsnack helps you create exactly that, only digitally. The digital flipbook is an interactive format for showing traditional printed documents, such as magazines, books, portfolios, and brochures in an online composition. You can easily create HTML5 flipbooks online with Flipsnack, which is fully compatible with mobile.
