Popular flipbook maker.
Which is actually funny.
A flipbook is just a digital magazine that behaves, virtually, like a physical magazine because you can “turn the pages” from side-to-side.
The whole point of this is to make new, digital publishing feel more like the real thing.
But here, we would take real magazines, which got digitized into linear, paginated content and make that back into page-turners.
At some level you have to smile at that.

Follow up to my last note...
Searching for one of those newsletters led me to Yumpu,
which has an "https://www.yumpu.com/user/otrr.org" account with a footer that says
<<458 Documents |1359703 Views | www.otrr.org >> ...
Very attractive... but I haven't had much time to explore. And don't remember hearing about it as a resource before, but so much goes on under "OTRR" accounts that who can keep track?
Is this something you're connected to, Paul? Or Ryan? Or does it go back to JimB days? Is it kept up to date?
At first, stumbling in on a single document (https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/11359455/mar-bren-sound-company-supplement-1-old-time-radio-) I suspected it was some profiteer just scrounging PDFs online, but could be those uploades were something the group is/was using as a hosting service or another way to "share the wealth."
