The original flipbook was a small book with a series of printed images which create the illusion of motion when the pages of the book are rapidly flipped. 

The modern e-flipbook is a digital interactive version that looks just like a printed publication, with pages that can be flipped and turned. It preserves the regular 'appearance' of a paper book but includes interactive elements.

e-flipbooks are more 'traditional'  and engaging then the customary flowing-down-the-page       PDF-type document.
