In the chapter entitled “E wo ugokashi maboroshi no zō wo eru [Move pictures to obtain an illusory image],” various devices that give motion to pictures before the birth of films are presented with an abundance of pictures. It is useful as a tool to know the outline of device mechanisms (including toys) used in the past.

There are quite a few articles examining motions in animation within the field of cognitive psychology. However, there are only a small number of books available. Here, I prioritized readability for non-specialists in motor perception and chose books that would provide a vehicle for people interested in motions in animation, including psychology books—as well as those authored by animation producers—and excluding research articles. Books on the “uncanny valley,” which has recently attracted attention of the selector, included one written in English.
