I currently have a print catalog that I would like to integrate into my website. I have looked at several options such as pageflip, and others. I just can't see paying $1500+ for a flash catalog. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good open source (or less expensive) alternative.

I don't need anything too advanced. I'd like to have a simple Table of Contents on the left, and flip through the pages on the right. The most advanced thing I'd want might be to have product SKUs or items hyperlinked to pages on my website.

Any info would be awesome!

It's a B2B catalog with information about products my company manufactures. The online version of the catalog is serve the needs of "got to have it right now" clients who've grown accustomed to the instant gratification of the internet. I'm looking for a software that can integrate pdf files into vector SWFs or something similar. With page flipping and a table of contents.

Do you want the products in this catalog to rank on search engines?

Ranking isn't a big concern. I've actually found a solution that I think we're going to go with. FlippingBook looks like it'll do what we're looking for.
