New York in Pyjamarama

Michaël Leblond | Illustrations by Frédérique Bertrand | October 25, 2012

An animated picture book like you’ve never seen before!

Move the piece of acetate slowly across the page and watch the images come to life as if by magic. The book is produced using the very old technique of Ombro-Cinema: the lines imbedded in the design create an illusion of movement when contrasted against the lines of the acetate. Join our pyjama clad hero as he leaves his bedroom to see the sights of New York at night time. Dodge the traffic, be dazzled by the lights on Broadway and take in the heights of the Big Apple’s dizzying skyline.



"A notable curiosity is Frédérique Bertrand and Michaël Leblond’s picturebook New York in Pyjamarama, because sliding a striped acetate rectangle over the images makes them more astonishingly – wheels spin, spirals whirl, and traffic, as seen from the air, moves through the streets." - Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times, (Christmas books of 2012)

"I found this book to be marvellous and highly recommend it ... The great thing about New York in Pajamarama is that readers can open the large book flat to control and enjoy the "magic." This is not a library book! It's a book to purchase (and I don't say that about many books since I love the library so much)." - Storied Cities Books
