We've got some fantastic new books to read together, then we'll create our own surprising thaumotropes. In 1827, before movies, before animation, a playful device called a thaumotrope was introduced as a popular toy that continues to demonstrate a nifty science phenomenon. A thaumotrope illustrates the persistence of vision: how images of two separate objects can be moved in such a way that they appear melded together; our minds see a distinct third image where none actually exists.
