About this book

Jungle features exotic animals in vivid colour and vibrant motion: A tree frog blinks his big red eyes. A tiger stalks his prey. A blue leaf monkey scratches his back. A tarantula scurries across the ground. A butterfly drinks from a tropical flower. A whipsnake darts its tongue. A nocturnal tarsier scans for food. A vividly patterned macaw comes in for a landing. It's a "Photicular Book" – a lenticular-based technology that transfers fluid 4-colour movies onto a book page.

Biography

Dan Kainen is an artist, designer, and inventor living in New York City. He is the creator of the bestselling Photicular books, Safari, Ocean and Polar. While working with some of the pioneers of holography, Dan created a special spotlight that was used by Soho's Museum of Holography to light holograms. The related field of holography led to Dan's interest in lenticular art, and in turn, after nearly a decade of research and experimentation, to the creation of his 'Motion Viewer,' his third patent in that field and the inspiration for Safari and the other Photicular books.

She has a physics and journalism degrees from New York University and has written about science and health for Self, Scholastic, Popular Science, and Family Fun magazines.
