This method of creating the optical illusion of movement has been known for a long time, but to the best of my knowledge, this 2007 book is the first book in the past 50 years to use this type optical illusion. Since then, a bunch of "scanimation" and "animotion" books have been released, and these books have the page with parallel lines on each page, and it automatically slides and creates the illusion of motion when the book is opened.
I can see this book being desirable by a collector of movable books. If you are buying books for children, you will probably be much happier with the "scanimation" and "animotion" books.
It is so special because you can see at once how the moving in the pictures works!
Nevertheless the images don‘t loose their magic impression!
