Happy Flipbook Friday! This flipbook from 1948 sure packs a lot of action in a small space. Beware the seductive hula girl! #flipbook #vintage #ephemera #hulagirl #animation

Went to a taping of Antiques Roadshow this past weekend. I brought along my antique flipbook collection, and as an attemp at some shameless self promotion also brought along this custom book featuring some Roadshow Superstars. I love the show so much and was so excited that it was a hit! #antiquesroadshow #flipbook #animation #theflippist

I present to you the Chippendales batery operated movie viewer. When I first discovered eBay I bought a dozen of these gems for $10. After years of carefully selected gift giving…this one remains. Such a special device. #chippendales #movieviewer #animation #80s

1940 flipbook featuring the complex baton move widely known as ‘The Vamp Kneepass’ (duhh)…the book also contains a catalog of various marching batons for sale for ‘every purse and purpose’ #flipbook #vintage #paper #animation #baton #BALL-GYRO

Here’s a really special flipbook from my collection. I believe it was from an early 1890s promotional movie photo-booth for a store in Paris. Love thinking of this random guy 120 years ago filling the 3 second filming time with a silly face just like someone would do today. #antique #animation #ephemera #flipbook #paris #selfie #photobooth

Rough animation and final of an anniversary flipbook I made for Mikey in the Philippines. The scene is one of their first dates…they were in a loud bar, then she suggested they take a long drive to a spot on top of a lush valcano (ya know…like where so many first dates end up) they laid together, listened to music, and stargazed. #flipbook #animation #theflippist #romantic #firstdate

One of my earlier flipbooks…hope the FLIPBOOK WITHIN A FLIPBOOK doesn’t blow your mind too hard! You’ve been warned. #flipbook #animation #theflippist #flipbookwithinaflipbook #thematrix
