I was in the gift shop at London design museum and I came across a scanimation picture book called gallop, I have never seen anything like it before as you turn the page the art moves before your eyes it is impossible not to keep flipping through the pages as the different animals come to life. Created by Rufus Butler Seder an inventor and filmmaker, 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. Although the book is designed for young children I couldn’t help but pick up a copy for myself.
