Motion Silhouette: A book illustrated with shadows

motion silhouette bookThere are so many reasons I’m fond of the book Motion Silhouette: the paper cuttings, the shadow illustrations, the ability for the reader to manipulate the images.  Everything about it is absolutely magical.  The authors who dreamed up Motion Silhouette are Megumi Kajiwara and Tatsuhiko Niijima.  The storybook is designed with paper silhouettes that create shadow illustrations on the pages via a light source.  Take a look at the video below to see how the book works.

  1. I love this! It’s such a brilliant idea, and yet so simple. I am sure my daughter would play with this for hours….and then she’d want to make her own. :)
