CSS3 Page Flip Gallery

17th May 2011

Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera

Absolutely NO javascript.

About as far as I can take this method to produce a gallery of stacked images.

Hover over the initial image to page flip to the next in the pile, then click this image to page flip to the next image and so on to continually cycle through the images.

Works without any problem in Safari, Chrome and Opera. Firefox needs a movement of the mouse after a click to trigger the :hover state and flip the image.

The code and stylesheet looks very simple but the actual process is quite complex and not easy to grasp what is actually happening.
