In its extraordinary debut, Safari, introduced the world to Photicular techlogy. The cheetah bounded, the African elephant flapped its ears and readers could t believe their eyes. Now the creators of Safari take their work a step further. Ocean offers t only a refinement of inventor Dan Kainen's Photicular techlogy, but a subject undulating creatures of the deep perfectly suited to the immersive visual pleasure of the process. Ocean is like being on a dive. Open the book, and the reader is swept into the magic of an underwater world, face-to-face with a floating Yellow-Banded Sweetlips; with a glow-in-the-dark Deep-Sea Anglerfish; with a Sea Horse swaying in balletic motion; with a Sand Tiger Shark gliding along the ocean floor, its gaze haunting, its hook-toothed mouth gulping open and closed. The text by Carol Kaufmann enchants with its descriptions of coral reefs; a journey on Alvin, the 17-ton submersible; and a meditation on our oceans. Then, for each creature, she writes a lively and informative essay, along with vital statistics size, habitat, range, diet, and more. The Photicular process uses an invative lenticular techlogy, sliding lenses, and original four-colour video imagery. The result is like a movie in your hands the dance of life in a book.
