Flipart: a creation of the Calvendo Publishing Company. Flipart products are poster books, that is “books to hang on the wall.” They consist of a minimum of 14 wire-bound sheets on which images and writing are printed, but with no calendar grid. They are less demanding than posters because they don’t need a frame to look good, and they are more diverse because just flipping over the page gives you a new motif. We’re talking Flipart!
