Workman Publishing Company Safari: A Photicular Book

Once before, we introduced a brand-new idea with a challenge: You wont believe your eyes. The book was Gallop!, the technology was Scanimation-, and the result was a bestseller. Now were back with another dazzling idea, and this time for t...he whole family: The book is Safari, it uses never-before-seen Photicular technology, and the result is breathtaking. Safari is a magical journey. Readers, as if on safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive. Using an innovative lenticular-based technology, precision sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. Its mesmerizing, as visually immediate as a National Geographic or Animal Planet special. Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. Its the romance of being on safariand the almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion in a book unlike any other.

Kids love origami?and what could be cooler than transforming a piece of paper into Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Yoda, or R2-D2? And n...ot just any paper, but custom-designed paper illustrated with art from the movies. Star Wars Origami marries the fun of paper folding with the obsession of Star Wars. Like The Joy of Origami and Origami on the Go, this book puts an original spin on an ancient art. And like Star Wars Scanimation and Star Wars Fandex, it?s a fresh take on Star Wars mania. Chris Alexander is a master folder and founder of the popular website StarWarsOrigami.com, and here are 36 models, clearly explained, that range in difficulty from Youngling (easy) to Padawan (medium), Jedi Knight (difficult), and Jedi Master (tricky!). A front section introduces origami definitions and basic folds. Bound in the back is the book?s unique folding paper, two sheets for each figure. Illustrated with original art, it makes each creation?the essential lightsabers, the Death Star, and much more?true to the movies. Star Wars Origami includes a foreword by Tom Angleberger, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back, and is scheduled to be published at the same time as Angleberger?s upcoming book, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee.
