Jack and Beverly’s Optical Toy Collection has a great collection of these optical toys pre-cinema. Thanks to them and more development to create the illusion of the movement we have the cinema. That’s why I love so much them, ok, they are very cool too.
There are thaumatropes, zoetropes, praxinoscopes, phenakistoscopes, flip books, dioramas, zograscopes and magic lanterns. BTW, you can make your own zoetrope and thaumatrope with PDF archives available on the site. (via Paper Forest)
