Artistic Illustrations With Shadows



Motion Silhouette is a unique book created by Megumi Kajiwara. This unique book  is a not only a pop-up book but requires a flashlight or similar moveable light source to create moving shadows that become part of the narrative. The moving shadow of a tree shows a day passing and then a lightening pattern. This is a gorgeous project with simple and elegant design that allows interaction that adds an element of the poetic.
