Our Phenakistoscope is a replica based on the revolutionary design of the renowned Belgian inventor Joseph Plateau who first invented this miraculous device in 1832. Phenakistoscopes, and similar devices such as the Zoopraxicope and Zoetrope were some of the first precursors to the moving pictures that are being referred to by some progressive minds as “Films”. We do so hope they gain in popularity.
To see one such “Film” of the Phenakistoscope in action go to this link.
Our Phenakistoscope is mounted on a wooden platform for ease of use that is stained light walnut or dark walnut in color (your choice). Three separate animation discs are included for your viewing pleasure and additional discs are available separately. The Phenakistoscope measures approximately 10 inches in height with the diameter of the discs being approx. 8 inches. With the disc in place the device measures approx. 14 inches in height.
