Flipback books now in English


They’ve been increasing in popularity in The Netherlands for the better part of two years and now flipback books are making their way to English-speaking markets. These books are basically a new take on the paperback, except theoretically smaller and lighter.

The books open from top to bottom, use sideways printed text and employ the very thin paper which is commonly used for bibles, in order to produce books which are only slightly larger than a cassette tape or iPhone. They are still pretty new and as such only a handful of titles are available in English but (if they live up to the hype) could be ideal for traveling.
