Classic Praxinoscope
by Ancient Magic Art Tools

The praxinoscope is an animation device, the successor to the zoetrope. It was invented in France in 1877 by Charles-Émile Reynaud. Like the zoetrope, it used a strip of pictures placed around the inner surface of a spinning cylinder. The praxinoscope improved on the zoetrope by replacing its narrow viewing slits with an inner circle of mirrors, placed so that the reflections of the pictures appeared more or less stationary in position as the wheel turned. Someone looking in the mirrors would therefore see a rapid succession of images producing the illusion of motion, with a brighter and less distorted picture than the zoetrope offered. (See video at top of page)

Recently, optical toys and devices like the ones sold here are popping up in movies like The Woman in Black, Oz The Great and Powerful and Jack the Giant Slayer. And we supplied Disney with our very own Zoetrope Replicas and Phenakistoscope Sets to use in The Long Ranger and Saving Mr. Banks.
