Flip Book Final

Flip Book Final

So, today was the completion of my flip book (and our group presentation as a whole). I took a different method of working with this flip book, not putting a full cover on as not to hinder the flipping movement. I found in my prototype, the slightly thicker paper of the cover hindered the flipping process. So this time, I made a leather half-sleeve cover and fastened the book with nuts and bolts (versus the split pins I used last time – which looked lovely but weren’t very tight). I like the end result, which a rather rough and tough looking little book, countered by the floral motif inside.

And just a quick image of our presentation space, which isn’t the most attractive of images as the place itself wasn’t really easy on the eye (it’s an ex-motor vehicle education space full of car-lifts and ugly car posters with almost no open wall space). You can see our thaumatropes, our zoetrope, a digital kaleidoscope and of course, my flip books and my little historical write ups on each piece (the red and white cards).
