Le Praxinoscope & le Zoetrope

I thought you might be interested to know about my new website, The Wheel of Life. The subject is 19th-century sequence-picture optical toys: zoetropes and such.

The Home page is here:

The Contents list is here:

There’s lots still to do to get the basic website finished (links to image sources, more main essays, etc) and then I’ll try to add something every month.

Best wishes,
