Oil on wood by Amy Crehore 2013 14" x 18 3/8"
With about 50 hours to go, you can help fund the book project on kickstarter for "The Magazine".
Here is the proposed book cover design and my final art created especially for this project (bottom). The art itself is offered as a fine art print. Follow the links for more info-

Just finished this painting- 14" x 18 3/8" oil on wood ©www.amycrehore.com. This was painted as a book cover for a printed book of select stories from The Magazine's first year. A mock-up version appears currently on kickstarter, but this is my final version of the painting. This is a fund raiser for the proposed book. They are also offering an almost full-size limited edition print of this as part of their fundraiser on kickstarter - http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/glennf/the-magazine-the-book-year-one

I spent the morning looking at these!
Dick Balzar collects antique magic lanterns, peepshows, shadows, transparencies, thaumatropes, phenakistascopes and other optical toys.
Go to his websites to see his collection of fantastic toys in action and to read the history.
You won't be sorry. So beautiful!
