I am looking for recommendations on flipbook software that could be used to create virtual stamp albums.

Wowslider,
Free/low cost, responsive design so album displays well on any size screen, idiot proof, flexible enough to do all kinds of things with a bit of creativity
https://wowslider.com/

Example of album style output

Example of twisting it to do other kinds of things (the bus animation)

Also does many, many other kinds of sliders

Edit; I do not use 3rd party online 'services' to host things like flipbooks. In other words, I only use tools that I can develop on my computer, upload the files to my website. I want full control over my content and have it all in a single location (my website), I want to buy the tool once and not rent a service from them month in and month out. I also do not recommend using Flash based flipbooks.

There are many, many flipbook services available which force you to use their servers and then use embed code to make them look like they are on your website. But if you are interested in these kinds of flipbooks, you can quickly search for the top 10-12 of them. Most are in the range of $15-$100 per month.

I use WowBook, a jQuery plugin that creates a flipbook interface, with "PDF under the hood":

Here is a work-in-progress example:

https://indonesianstamps.net/covers/chap5.html


The toolbar across the bottom is fully customizable. For example, I disabled the audible page-turning sound effect which is on by default, as well as removing the sound control icon. I also reordered the various icons from the default.

You've got a toggle-able Table of Contents that displays at left, thumbnails across the top, magnification icons, fullscreen option, and text search.

It obeys most link constructs within the PDF, both internal and external. For example, I made the word "Indonesia" at the top of the first page after the cover a link to this thread, which opens in an external browser window.

It's not free, but the one-time purchase cost is nominal.
