Synopsis

Safari A Photicular Book by Dan Kainen, Carol Kaufmann

Imagine a field guide to all the animals you'd encounter on an African safari, but instead of looking at a photograph of them in the book you're reading, you're actually seeing a small film clip on the page of the animal in motion. It's a PhoticularTM Book - a lenticular-based technology that transfers fluid 4-color movies onto a book page. Why just read about the way a cheetah can run up to 60mph when you can actually watch him running, too? It's like having a coffee table book come to life in your hands. Featuring eight gorgeous animals (cheetah, rhino, elephant, giraffe, gazelle, zebra, gorilla, and lion), Safari: A PhoticularTM Book is full of the information you'd expect to hear from a real safari tour guide about each animal - plus an evocative first-person essay about the safari experience by nature writer and safari traveller, Carol Kaufmann. This spectacular book of motion pictures will leave you breathless.

His art has been exhibited in the Ronald Feldman Gallery in Soho, among other New York galleries and private collections, and his lighting designs have been marketed nationwide. In the 1980s he started experimenting with holography, and then integrated images. This led to three patents in that field, the latest of which is the basis for his Photicular books.
