Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Embark on an eye-opening adventure in the land Down Under, and see eight creatures in astounding motion. From the New York Times bestselling series.

Using Photicular® technology that's like a 3-D movie on the page, OUTBACK whisks you to the vast, remote world of wild Australia, where heat waves dance forever and animals, isolated by the vagaries of continental drift, are unlike those found anywhere else on Earth.
 
Each moving image delivers a rich, immersive visual experience-and the result is breathtaking. The kangaroo hops. A wombat waddles. The frilled lizard races on two legs across the desert floor. A peacock spider dances and shows off its vibrant colors. Experience it for yourself!

 
From The Publisher*A new addition to the bestselling Photicular line, featuring images of amazing Australian animals from kangaroos to lizards that walk on two feet--images that really move when you turn the page!--plus fascinating text about the Australian outback, its landscape, its history, and the remarkable creatures who call it home.
Biographical Note

Dan Kainen is an artist, designer, and inventor living in New York City. He is the creator of the bestselling Photicular books Safari, Ocean, Polar, Jungle, Wild, and Dinosaur. His website is DanKainen.com.

While working with some of the pioneers of holography, Dan created a special spotlight that was used by Soho's Museum of Holography to light holograms. The related field of holography led to Dan's interest in lenticular art and, in turn, after nearly a decade of research and experimentation, to the creation of his "Motion Viewer," his third patent in that field and the inspiration for Safari and the other Photicular books.
