3. jQuery Easing Plugin
Add the Easing jQuery Plugin. While not completely necessary, if not included your animations will not look as nice.
4. Booklet Files
Load the Booklet JS and CSS files. Be sure when editing the CSS file to make image paths relative to the CSS file. When changing some of the image options in the Booklet options, those images will be relative to the page itself.
5. Create the Content
To create a booklet you must first place the content for the book onto your page.
- Make an outside container <div> and give it an identifier like an ID or Class.
- Inside of your container, add your pages. The booklet will recognize each direct children as a slide, which could contain content or be a single item.
The following shows a simple four page book.
6. Initialize the Booklet
Using jQuery selectors initialize your booklet. You can setup multiple books either with the same class or within the same selector, as long as you want their options to be the same.

7. (Optional) IE6 Support
By default, the images for the booklet shadows and arrows are PNG's. To make them compatible with IE6 I highly recommend DD_belatedPNG
An example on how to use it is below:
