Safari : A Photicular Book, Hardback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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.
