Hello,and apologies for this impersonal “round robin” - (too little time, too much to know!)I thought you might be interested to know that I have started work on a new website, The Wheel of Life. The subject is 19th-century sequence-picture optical toys.The Home page is here:http://www.stephenherbert.co.uk/wheelHOME.htmthis links through to the main essays.The Contents list is here:http://www.stephenherbert.co.uk/wheelComing.htmthis links to other pages.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.I hope you enjoy The Wheel of Life as it develops, and I’m always pleased to hear comments, and learn new things about the subject.Best wishes,Stephen Herbert
Thank you for leaving a message. What a rich arena. Your website looks fantastic - so much to explore. Some great images and optical effects. Good luck with its ongoing progression.I made 5 animated zoetropes for the wonderful horse exercise yard at Calke Abbey. Each with its imagery and animation. http://jofairfax.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/calke-abbey-zoetrope-inspired-pieces_02.htmlThanks and good luck.
