Creating a Flipbook Image Slider with CSS3 3D Transforms and jQuery

Creating a Flipbook Image Slider with CSS3 3D Transforms and jQuery

Recently the ‘flip book’ effect has become really popular on a lot of websites, so I got to thinking about how you could go about pulling off that effect using some jQuery and CSS3. I find that most of the implementations of this code can get a little bit complicated, so I tried to make things as simple as possible.

We’re going to write this code as a jQuery plugin, so first you need to include jQuery. Next we want to include a script called Modernizr. We only need 3D Transforms, and you can download the required script from here. This will ensure everything will work fine in browsers which do not support 3D Transforms. Then you have to make a file called jquery.pictureflip.js which will be where we’re putting our plugin code!

BookBlock: A Content Flip jQuery Plugin

We will be using jQuery++ by Bitovi which has some add-ons for jQuery (specifically, to add the swipe event).
