Uncommon Knowledge: Flipbooks were first created in the 1860s, but didn’t take off until the 1880s when photographer Edweard Muybridge and inventor Thomas Edison worked with flipbooks as experiments prior to movies. In the 1920s, flipbooks became popular as both toys and ways to learn certain activities.
