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 
4 × 5" paper camera with pinhole lens, a lightproof bag with five sheets of photo paper and development instructions.

The book includes:

  • A piece of paper folded into a working 4x5" camera
  • A lightproof bag
  • 5 sheets of photo-paper "film"
  • Development instructions (use household ingredients or photo chemicals)
  • A satisfying demonstration of the connection between design & science / structure & function
