Unusual Japanese Flipbooks that Cleverly Use Negative Space and Cutouts to Tell a Story [VIDEO]

The compartments are not actually compartments, per say, but are grooves and cutouts within the book that gradually reveal themselves as you flip through them. Because of these unique elements, combined with the elaborate illustrations, Kenkyujo’s flipbooks are rather extraordinary.
