Interactive ‘Motion Silhouette’ Book Uses Light And Shadows To Bring Stories To Life
Megumi Kajiwara and Tatuhiko Nijima, two Japanese illustrators and designers, have created a beautiful book called Motion Silhouette that uses light and shadows to animate its beautifully illustrated pages.
The hand-bound book’s pages feature small pop-up paper forms that cast shadows on the book depending on where you hold your light source. These shadows interact with the page – on one, a train barrels along a track, and in another, a face blows away a dandelion’s seeds. Check out their video to see how their beautiful and clever book works!
