NEW: STRETCH GOALS! (Check Updates to see animations)

Since we hit goal backing will not only get you rewards but also improve the book experience for everyone! Take a look at these additional goals called "OP CARDS" there's a "6 OP CARDS FULL COLLECTION" for every single backer (over $10):

Why this book?

This book is meant for you to have a lot of fun playing with the film and watching real-time animations right there on paper.
It is very easy to use, and looks like magic.
Many people ask how this is possible, and the answer is: it is simply based on animation principles and the “moiré” effect. This book is meant for all age ranges. Adults will consider it a very funny object-book and children will enjoy it as well, because it will wake up their curiosity in this touch-screen era, and they will find it extremely quirky to see how this may happen on simple paper.

OK, but what’s exactly POP ON OP?

It is a real-time interactive animation object-book that you can enjoy with a simple horizontal-sliding movement of a special film provided inside.

You will see animations straight in all the pages; the book contains 110 pages divided as follows: 55 animated -mostly geometrical, character-based- designs, and 55 other designs with a short funny poem corresponding to each animation.

There is an easy-to-use access rail in the back cover of the book to allow a simple horizontal sliding. This is real-time movement, and the experience only involves the book, the film and yourself.

The very same special film can be used on all pages in the book. Moreover, the cover artwork has the film embedded so you don’t even have to open the book to enjoy it. The book contains 2D and 3D animations as well.

and how is it posible? animations on simple paper?

It is part of an artwork style I have been developing for nine years. Apart from being an artist, I am an engineer and I have developed a style in which you can enjoy movement in a simple way. It is all based on classic animation principles plus some calculation. This is real movement, real-time.

Risks and challenges

Fortunately this book is 100% designed and tested, the 110 pages are totally completed. So the only challenge is mass-producing it, for which we have completed the full requirements for a mass-printing that includes full CMYK high-res files and the cover system design (which is totally tested as you can see in the video). It is going to be produced in a Brooklyn based print.
