What’s a digital flipbook?

A digital flipbook is a format for presenting content online as an engaging interactive HTML5 document that can be viewed in any browser and on any screen. Converted from a plain PDF via FlippingBook, each online flipbook has a fresh streamlined look with a realistic page flip effect, your company branding, interactive videos, and outbound links. Here’s how to create a digital flipbook: upload your PDF, and FlippingBook will turn it into an HTML5 flipbook. Piece of cake!

What’s more? Online flipbooks are super easy to share and track. Go beyond heavy PDFs: send your flipbook as a direct link available on any device, embed it on your site, generate a QR-code for your digital flipbook. And then analyze how people interact with the HTML5 flipbook by tracking views, the most engaging pages, outbound clicks in real time.


Digital flipbook means an excellent viewing experience for everyone, everywhere

Take your plain PDF to a new level—make an interactive digital flipbook that’s so easy to publish and share online. With HTML5, your ebooks with smooth flip animation always look great and open instantly on any device.

How to create a flipbook from PDF

FlippingBook software is intuitive and requires no coding skills. You can convert a PDF to a flipbook and publish it online in no time.


Upload a PDF to FlippingBook Online or FlippingBook Publisher. Your PDF will be converted into an online flipbook in 1-2 minutes.


Now that the PDF to flipbook conversion is over, you can customize your publication: set your background, add logo, brand the direct link, and more.


Add videos, GIF animation, and pop-up images for more engagement and interactivity. Insert links to relevant pages and outside sources.


Your flipping book is ready! Now share it as a link via email or social media, or embed it directly into your website. You can also generate a QR-code for the flipbook.

Digital flipbook examples

Flipbooks are a great way to show and share such PDF publications as ebooks, catalogs, brochures, magazines, proposals, reports, newsletters, photo albums, portfolios, travel guides, pitches, presentations, forecasts, marketing and sales slicks, and more. You can deliver a realistic open-book experience with a two-page layout or display one page at a time—the page flip effect will still be there!
