We have a few clients that have asked about this capability so we looked into it in detail and eventually after trying various plugins/components and modules for Joomla settled on a conversion process that takes place on your local machine and then the final product is uploaded to your website.
I am not going to link to "Flipbuilder" here because their after sales service was absolutely abysmal and I wouldnt recommend spending well over £300 with this company unless you are prepared to fix multiple issues and complications yourself! A simple Google search will find them, dont hold your breath if you need them AFTER you have paid for it though.
But it has to be said the final result is excellent and as such if you have a pdf to flip book job that you need to achieve we can now do it for you!
If you are a web designer and need to implement this on a Joomla or Wordpress or basically any website we can produce a flipping book for you and send it to you in a module for you to plugin to your site.
Here is an example of how your flipping book could look. The background is fully customisable and as you can see the book is even searchable. Just supply us with the .PDF and we will do the rest.
