TANKS The Wonder Weapon Flip Book

£3.99 £1.00

Come face to face with a Mark IV tank in this 1917 scene reproduced from the Imperial War Museum s Film Archive. The Museum s Film and Video Archive holds some 20,000 hours of moving image material. Originally, public access to film clips was provided in the museum galleries on Mutoscope machines, which operated on exactly the same principle as this flip book. A flip book is a book with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion.
