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.

Visitors to The Carrack will be encouraged to pick up, flip through, buy and interact with flipbooks. Selected flipbooks appropriate for a general audience will be stop motion filmed and on view at The Carrack and online. Flipbook sales go directly to the artist, zero commission taken. Prize for Best in Show will be awarded at opening reception. Live performance of flipbook show soundtrack will follow.
