Turn That Frown Upside Down
These hand-crafted miniature flipbooks were created to spread humor and joy throughout the land. I scan old tintypes and copyright-free vintage photographs into my computer, and through the magic of digital processing, add color and movement. Flipping through a book creates the illusion of motion, such as hip-swaying belly dancers, bees buzzing around heads or hats, or pedalists furiously pedaling with drapery flying.

Archivally inkjet printed on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper - Screwpost Binding
Each editioned flipbook is signed and numbered. All are available in Right-Handed (RH) and Left-Handed (LH) versions, offered as separate editions. (*See below for tips on how to choose your version.)

Take any magazine or paperback book and flip through it. If you prefer to flip from front to back, order a Right-Handed (RH) version. Conversely, if you prefer to flip from back to front, you will want to order a Left-Handed (LH) version.
