    DR. STEAMPUNK
    Ok, it's not steam powered, that's up to you.
    This is a limited production run of the mechanical flipbook kit. Looking like a vintage box-camera with old-style brass-colored hardware details (it's all about the details) Our original flip book art sells for up to $12000 in galleries - now you can build your own 24 frame animated contraption that kinda looks like it came from Captain Nemo's library or H.G. Well's drawing room.
    Included are 36 flipbookit flip panels, more than enough page-stock printer sheets, a single spindle-hub, assembly tools and step-by-step instructions on-line template tools.
