The Flipbook Show

The Flipbook Show

August 18 – 29, 2015

Kids coming up in the digital age have no reference for where all this technology came from. Once, the only form of interactive media we had was in the form of flipbooks. And surprisingly, flipbooks are still around, even in the digital age. Why is that?

If you can draw a stick figure, you can create a story. If you can draw more than a stick figure, you can create a piece of art. Movies, video games, and animation are all just grandbabies of the humble art form. Flipbooks have been around for at least a couple hundred years, and they’re not leaving anytime soon.
