Zoetrope


While going through some items that I've had in storage in my personal archive over the years, I came across this toy Zoetrope, which I had been given for Christmas or a birthday as a child. It still had the original animated strips of paper, as well as a few that I had drawn myself on the blank strips, that came with it. This simple little illusion of movement was a precursor to the cinema.
