DRAWINGS that MOVE with Old Phone Book

MOTION with MANY DRAWINGS
Before discarding or recycling an old unused phone book, you can use it to make drawings that move.  If you do not have an old phone book, a discarded catalogue that is no longer needed may be used.

OLD PHONE BOOK

This works well only with very small drawings, because there is usually only a narrow border around each page.  You can make the drawings move around the border.  With a large phone book, many drawings could be done.

Helpful Hints:  Each picture is drawn almost like the next.   Slight changes in the drawings from page to page make the movement look smoother, but slower.  Large changes between drawings makes the movement look faster.  How fast or slow you flip the pages also controls the speed of the motion.
