M.C. Escher pop-ups by Courtney Watson McCarthy; Martin Howard (Introduction by)The mesmerizing work of Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher has fascinated viewers for more than seventy years.

These marvelous paper constructions allow us to appreciate in new ways the artist's impossible geometry and his themes of infinity and paradox.The book also features quotes from Escher on the original pieces of art as well as reproductions of a number of his other works.
Gallop! by Rufus Butler Seder"There's never before been a book like Gallop! Employing a patented new technology called Scanimation, each page is a marvel that brings animals, along with one shining star, to life with art that literally moves. A first book of motion for kids, it shows a horse in full gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog runs, a cat springs, an eagle soars, and a butterfly flutters. Created by Rufus Butler Seder, an inventor, artist, and filmmaker fascinated by antique optical toys, Scanimation is a state-of-the-art six-phase animation process that combines the "persistence of vision" principle with a striped acetate overlay to give the illusion of movement. It harkens back to the old magical days of the kinetoscope, and the effect is astonishing, like a Muybridge photo series springing into action--or, in terms kids can relate to, like a video without a screen." author website
