Los Angeles-based kinetic artists Mark Rosen and Wendy Marvel have widely exhibited their series of original motorized flip books, which are based on the 19th century motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge. In 2013 they created the FlipBooKit, a DIY hand-cranked animation movie machine that displays animated art in flip book style.

This new MAKER Kit is easily assembled and comes with almost everything you need to turn your own video or images into a custom animation. You come up with the design, then illustrate it by hand or create your own 24-frame animation by uploading your own video or images to FlipBooKit's free online flip-maker tool and print them on the label sheets provided. Please note that the Dove Animation Cards are available separately.

Extra blank DIY cards for making your own custom animations are available separately, as are the Special Edition "Flying Dove" Animation Cards, created by the FlipBooKit team especially for the Museum of Jurassic Technology, based on a display in the Museum's Tell the Bees... exhibit.

Each FlipBooKit MAKER includes:
  • FlipBooKit box (comes flat)
  • Blank Flip Cards
  • Printable Labels
  • Hardware and spindle kit for assembly
  • Instruction Sheet (in English - video instructions are available on the Flibookit website)
Available separately:
  • Extra Blank DIY Cards
  • Special Edition "Flying Dove" Animation Cards
