This working camera in a pop-up book is a fun and educational way to learn about the basic principles of photography. The book concisely explains- while actively demonstrating- how a structure as humble as a folded piece of paper can tap into the intrinsic properties of light to produce a photograph. Easily turn a room in your home into a darkroom and process photos using household supplies. The book includes a working paper camera with pinhole lens, a lightproof bag with five sheets of photo paper and development instructions.
