Animated Optical Illusion - Close Up Magic
Gaze in wonder as mysterious images transform into magical animations. Make the horses gallop, a flag wave, 3D objects turn, and see London landmarks come to life. Many other familiar objects spin, rotate and animate through the pages of this book. All that is needed is the special acetate overlay (provided in the book) to bring the images to life Moving images first appeared in the 19th century as simple optical devices such as the Thaumatrope and the Zoetrope. The process of displaying sequences of still images in rapid succession - to show apparent motion - is the basis of early film animation and motion pictures.
