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 “Photicular Book”- a lenticular-based technology that transfers fluid 4-colour movies onto a book page.
Why just read about the way a cheetah can run up to 60 mph 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 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.
