About FlipBooKit

FlipBooKit was originally funded by its wildly successful Kickstarter campaign in October 2013 with over 1,700 backers and $130,000 in pledges. The DIY flip book project launched its campaign on Kickstarter.com in late September 2013 to coincide with its debut at New York Maker Faire, and it became one of the most well-funded art projects in Kickstarter history.

To date over 12,000 FlipBooKits have been delivered, and FlipBooKit art shows receive submissions from all over the world. Since launch, we have fostered young artists and budding makers with community outreach to teachers, art schools, high schools, charities, summer camps, and maker­spaces, bringing tens of thousands of custom movie gifs to life.
