Most passports are usually filled with iconic images of the country, for example faint images of buildings, people, and animals cover each page. Finland has come up with a unique way to make its travel document secure, but also attractive and fun.

On the corner of each page in Finland’s passport, you would find a picture of a moose. As you flip through the book, the moose begins to walk. The flipbook idea is clever and rethinks the way government documents are perceived.
