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.

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
