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.

About the Author

Dan Kainan is a New York inventor, artist, photographer, and industrial designer. An alumnus of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, he is equally at home in such diverse fields as fabric screen-printing, electro-optic and laser systems design, and commercial lighting design and manufacturing. 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. Carol Kaufmann, a former staff writer for National Geographic, and, as one might imagine, is extremely well-travelled. She's covered politics and presidential campaigns as well as archaeology, marine biology, and cultural anthropology stories all over the planet. Carol's writing has appeared inReader's Digest, where she was the National Affairs Reporter, The Washington Post, George, and in the anthologyA Woman's Europe.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
