What is a Flipbook?

A flipbook is an immersive online version of traditionally printed content such as booklets, brochures, magazines, newspapers, and more. A benefit of flipbooks is that they can be infused with media and other elements like links and videos. Distribution becomes easier and more cost-effective, as links to your flipbooks can be added to emails, shared on social media, or turned into QR codes for in-person scanning. You can display Issuu Flipbooks seamlessly on your website with our copy-and-paste Embeds.

Flipbooks have turnable pages just like printed books, but flipbooks give you statistics on who is reading your publications, allow you to boost interactivity with links and video content, and help you reach a global audience with the click of a button.
