Lotte Reiniger Flipbook



Lotte Reiniger Flipbook / ISBN 9788412212259 / from Flipboku in Mallorca


Lotte Reiniger (1899–1981) was a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation. Her best-known films are The Adventures of Prince Achmed from 1926 -- thought to be one of the oldest surviving feature-length animated films -- and Papageno from 1935. In devising a forerunner of the multiplane camera for certain effects, she anticipated Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney by a decade. She made more than 40 films, all using her invention.

This flipbook features six different stories depending on the position of your thumb as well as augmented reality, viewable when scanning the slipcase with your smartphone or tablet: a 2-minutes micro-documentary about the artists life, her background and her most outstanding work.
