History of Flip Book

Pierre-Hubert Desvignes,a frenchman had the idea for a type of flip book he named the folioscope around 1860.The first flip book appeared in 1868 when it was patented by John Barnes Linnett ,an english lithographer, named kineograph (Latin for “moving picture”). His kineograph was the first form of animation to use a linear sequence of images like a booklet. Max Skladanowsky was a filmmaker from Germany. He was the first person who exhibit his photographic images in flip book form in 1894. In the same year,Herman Casler invented Mutoscope,a mechanized type of flip book. The pages were put on a turning cylinder rather than in a book. Mutoscope remained popular at amusement parks as well as arcades well into the twentieth century. Henry Williams sold something called a filoscope in 1897. This was a flip book inside a metal holder. When they were first sold, the public considered the flip book a fascinating form of entertainment.
