    book-like flippable site

    I love JK Rowling's web site, http://www.jkrowling.com and wanted to make something similar for my husband's site. I know I can't do anything this fancy but would love to know how to at least have the book-like appearance with page turning. Click on the biography pictures (top left) and you'll see what I mean.

    There is this other service, http://www.nxtbook.com/index.html that my company uses for an online version of a print magazine and it's quite cool too but not for a home business.

    Does JKR's site use Flash to do all this? Are there sites where I can get a hint of how to do this myself? I've played w/Flash and can do stupid useless things w/it but that's it. Even web templates I could buy to get me started would be ok.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Deb

    Yep it is all done by Flash, pretty good stuff although I was a tad irritated that they wanted me to turn off my pop up blocker to view the site!!! I have a feeling that the site cost a lot of money to get it up and running and created...but then she has a lot of money. My <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> worth.

    Yeh it's well done. I like the little fly that moves around at will and other motion just like an untidy desk in real life with things changing all the time.

    I found this company, http://www.pepfx.com/flash_applications/book/ that sounds like a service which will create it for you. Cover + 6 pages, $270. I'd prefer a template I can modify myself as I have Flash MX and don't want to go back to them for every edit.

    I'll keep looking....
