The Praxinoscope is a device used for animation. It is the successor of the Zoetrope. It was invented in France in 1877 by Charles-Emile Raynaud. Similar to the Zoetrope, it uses a strip of images placed around the inner surface of a rotating cylinder. In comparison to the Zoetrope, the Praxinoscope uses more advanced technology by replacing the narrow viewing slots with an inner circle of mirrors. Looking at them, you can see a sequence of images, creating the illusion of movement.
Size of the Praxinoscope: 21 x 18 cm. Size of the package: 23 x 19 x 20 cm. The box includes: Praxinoscope, 10 different illustrative strips.
