Celebrate the magic of kaleidoscopes by learning how they work, and then creating 24 sensational -- and simple -- scopes. An article by nationally known kaleidoscope maker Charles Karadimos explains the effects of different mirror systems -- the so-called "heart" of a scope -- and Sherry Moser, another renowned kaleido-scope artist, provides an overview of what objects -- the "soul" of the scope -- can be put into the end chamber to produce excellent images. Full-color photographs highlight every project and showcase the work of some of the most talented kaleidoscope artisans in the world.
