I finished my Ph.D. thesis about electrostatic micromechanical devices in April 2010 (Buy). Originally I wanted to print a small flip-book in the header or footer visualizing my work, but discarded the plan after seeing some eyebrow raising of my proof readers.
I still had the idea in mind though and after some tinkering around implemented an animation with Povray.
To get a paper flip-book from that, the images have to be distributed over a piece of paper. As I don't like office applications very much, I ended up writing a small Python script which creates a PDF employing the excellent pypdf package. The result just lacks some cutting lines.
All necessary files are in this git repository.
