Overview

Jungle: A Photicular Book by Dan Kainen, Kathy Wollard

Dense and humid and filled with secrets, the rain forest is home to more than half the world’s plants and animals. Using unique Photicular technology, Jungle parts the mysterious veil of this sun-dappled land and reveals—in fluid 3-D motion—the living exuberance within. Watch a tarantula scuttle across the forest floor. A dancing whipsnake flick its tongue. A Bengal tiger on the prowl, and a brilliant green and red macaw soar above the canopy.

It’s magical! In a world saturated with video, Photicular technology weaves a very special spell, capturing intimate, moving moments of life on earth, and tapping deeply into the reader’s imagination. With three books published—Safari, Ocean, and Polar—the bestselling series has over 1.3 million copies in print.

Experience it for yourself.

About the Author

Dan Kainen is an artist, designer, and inventor living in New York City. He is the creator of the bestselling Photicular books Safari, Ocean,Polar, Jungle, and Wild. His website is DanKainen.com.

While working with some of the pioneers of holography, Dan created a special spotlight that was used by Soho’s Museum of Holography to light holograms. The related field of holography led to Dan’s interest in lenticular art and, in turn, after nearly a decade of research and experimentation, to the creation of his “Motion Viewer,” his third patent in that field and the inspiration for Safari and the other Photicular books.
