Dan Kainen is an artist, designer, and inventor living in
New York City. He is the creator of the bestselling Photicular
books Safari, Ocean, Polar, Jungle, and
Wild. While working with some of the pioneers of holography,
Dan created a special spotlight that was used by Soho's Museum of
Holography to light holograms. The related field of holography led
to Dan's interest in lenticular art and, in turn, after nearly a
decade of research and experimentation, to the creation of his
"Motion Viewer," his third patent in that field and the inspiration
for Safari and the other Photicular books.
Kathy Wollard is a science journalist and the author of the bestselling How Come? Every Kid's Science Questions Explained. Her work has appeared in Newsday, Scholastic, Popular Science, and Family Fun magazines.
