Flip Book Interactive Media "The Sombrero Kid"



video

Okay, I am only going to do this once, cause that's the way I roll...er...flip. The Sombrero Kid was a dame! The first flip book (and I guess, the first example of interactive media) was patented in 1882. This one, an original circa 1930 or so, was one of a series of adult novelty books sold under the counter. ( I can tell it is an original because of the grimy, leering fingerprints, several of which are now mine) They have been reprinted... I'm reluctant to link to the vendor because I didn't think of the idea first, but here it is. And yes...my garage sale decorated living room. It is an 8 second long clip.

  1. She reminds me of the girls at the "Sally Rand Nude Ranch" at the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco, 1939-40.

  2. They always make me think about creating one of my own. Don't think I have the patience though.
