Christine Harrison’s Beirut Elephant Gun zoetrope

Here’s a nice seven-image paper zoetrope made by Christine Harrison as a promo for Beirut’s Elephant Gun. I like that it goes on a record player–you could put the Elephant Gun vinyl  on the player and have a full audiovisual experience!



I learned about this project via Deborah at Kickcan and Conkers. She’s also posted about some of my other favorite pre-cinema toys here. Last year at this time I was gearing up for my research trip to visit some great collections of optical toys (including those at the V & A Museum of Childhood). It was such a fun time!
