What if you would be able to play with what you draw…

Interesting Fact: John Barnes Linnett patented the first flip book in 1868 as the kineograph. A flip book is a small book with relatively springy pages, each having one in a series of animation images located near its unbound edge. The user bends all of the pages back, normally with the thumb, then by a gradual motion of the hand allows them to spring free one at a time. As with the phenakistoscope, zoetrope and praxinoscope, the illusion of motion is created by the apparent sudden replacement of each image by the next in the series, but unlike those other inventions no view-interrupting shutter or assembly of mirrors is required and no viewing device other than the user’s hand is absolutely necessary. Early film animators cited flip books as their inspiration more often than the earlier devices, which did not reach as wide an audience. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_animation )

Interesting Fact: Leslie Scott, game designer and author, developed the original JENGA® Classic game from a wood block stacking game her family had created in Ghana in the 1970s. Introduced to the public at the famous Harrod’s department store in London in 1982, JENGA® was launched in North America in 1986, and has since become an international game icon.
