Flipbook Museum

Flipbook Museum We are the Southern California Flipbook Museum. We celebrate the art of flipbooks, the oldest form of cinematic entertainment. Flipbooks are the GIFs of the 20th century.

Thumb-driven, primitive animation. A story in seconds. They can be high art, they can sell bread. The Southern California Flipbook Museum is a private collection of hundreds of flipbooks dating back to the early 1900s.
