Item description for Tequila: Flip Book (Santiago Melazzini) by Santiago Melazzini...

Santiago Melazzini's short moving pictures--flip books--of literally black-and-white and figuratively colorful Mexican life are as low-tech as it gets: watch the masked luchadores bounce off the wrestling-ring ropes and then fall to the mat, watch the boxer punch, the Mariachi band play, or the tequila have its way, and then watch it all again backwards. An elemental pleasure and an ideal gift.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tequila: Flip Book (Santiago Melazzini)?

Salud!  Aug 30, 2007
I first discovered flip books in the early 90s while browsing a basement-level art store on 7th St. in NW Washington, DC, right around the corner from Ford's Theater. That's where I bought my first books by Ruth Hayes. Her work was line art storytelling using motion in a 50-page format at a 10 second clip. It was fascinating art form and I was hooked.

Since then, most of my books have been either line-drawn art like Hayes and Bula Bula, the computer illustrated works of Fliptomania or the graphic comic look of FlipIt!.

And then, while on another browsing adventure through off-beat stores, I came upon this work by Santiago Melazzini which made me see photography as a flip book art form, too.

Melazzini tells a beautifully fluid story in Tequila. The black-and-white photography is vivid and sharp and the motion is flawless.

What makes his work stand apart, however, is his perspective. Rather than feeling like you are a third-party observer to the action on the pages, his flip book makes you feel as if you are a party in the action - a companion to the story. He draws you into his movable frames.

It's great stuff. And even if you aren't a flip book aficionado like me, for this price you can afford to be surprised - and delighted.
