Set of Four Double-Sided Thomas Edison Flipbooks
 
02:10
http://AncientOptics.com Four flipbooks showing seven experimental film sequences shot by the Edison Laboratories in the earliest days of motion pictures, and now kept at the Library of Congress. Each book is printed with a sequence on both sides of each page so that flipping the book from front to back will show you one movie, and from back to front will show you another one. The books are a large 3 x 5 inches. Except where we felt there is historical value, all the images of the sequences have been painstakingly edited to present as clear an image as possible. Each book comes with historical insights by Charles Musser of Yale University who has written extensively about Edison's work and is the world's most widely respected contemporary Edison scholar.

Reproducing Lotto's painting with a lens
 
01:11
John Shadeck (M.A. student in art education) showing him reproducing the technique David Hockney and Charles M. Falco proposed Lotto used to create the central octagonal pattern on the carpet. As the clip shows, John used one lens from a pair of reading spectacles (2 diopter; focal length 50 cm) to focus the image of the symmetrical, octagonal pattern at the left onto his easel at the same magnification we calculated from the painting (0.56×). The small depth of field at this high magnification required John to refocus twice, resulting in a final pattern that reproduces Lotto's to a remarkable degree.

Eyck's drawing of Cardinal Albergati reproduced with a concave mirror
 
02:20
Projection of a life-size reproduction of van Eyck's drawing of Cardinal Albergati (right), by a concave mirror (center), onto a screen at a magnification of ~40% (left). Because a digital camera can capture only a limited brightness range, the exposure for this photo was a compromise to keep the drawing at the right from being washed out. This setup was created by Natalie Gakopoulos as part of her senior capstone project in optical engineering (fall 2007). Even though the measured illumination of the drawing was only 12% of noon sunlight, the brightness and sharpness of this projected image were more than sufficient to allow Natalie to easily trace it with the level of accuracy that is exhibited in the van Eyck painting. The sketch Natalie made using this optical setup is below. This is the same optical setup that Stork used for his calculation that he claims found "there is never a sharp focus," from which he concludes it "casts doubt upon this claim [that a projected image was used]." As Natalie's sketch shows, all one needs to do is to project an image at the appropriate magnification to see that Stork's conclusion from his computer calculation of this optical setup is quite obviously wrong.

Phenakistoscope Phenakistiscope Optical Toy Fantascope
 
00:38
http://AncientOptics.com This illusion is hard to capture on camera because you need to look in the mirror to see it, so this video gives you an idea of what it will look like, but doesn't really do it justice. The phenakistoscope uses a spinning disc attached vertically on a wooden handle. Around the center of the disc a series of pictures is drawn corresponding to frames of the animation; around its circumference is a series of radial slits. The user spins the disc and looks through the moving slits at the disc's reflection in a mirror, which makes the drawings seem to come to life.
