I've always been a fan of animation. I really enjoyed the section in our recent reading about the early studies of locomotion, primitive moving pictures and film animation techniques, including the creations of the Zoetrope, Praxinoscope, Phenakistoscope, and Stereoscope as precursors to the actual film projector.
As per usual, I went hunting for more information on these inventions via the Internet. These are just a few of the fascinating and beautiful examples I found...enjoy!
