Normal text books are laid out to suit the printing format, with most referenced figures or tables near their first reference point or in separate appendices.
The Flip Text Book will be laid out like the childrens person matching books. Essentially three or more books on the same spine. One has
text, one has figures, and one has tables. Now you can turn to the figure you want and just read through the text referring to the figure as required.

||Maybe the pages with important figures could fold out vertically, so you could still turn the pages and still see the table above the book.
||A couple pens work good as page markers. If you know your book good enough you know exactly where everything is. This isn't a very imaginative solution to a nonproblem. Just an opinion. [-]
||+1 from me - this seems like a novel approach to text books
||I wonder if restaurants could use it for menus -
starters, main, desserts and drinks.
