Twentyfive-page Japanese booklet with some English translation, produced by the HSD Group, titled `Holograms for Displaying 3D Images;' adhered to p. 19 is an embossed, rainbow-colored hologram on reflective foil of a metal toy in which a stick-figure-type man sits on a stick-figure-type horse (the horse is balanced on its front legs, and is presumably a wobbly, rocking, balance-type toy); booklet explains basic history, principles and applications of holography; cover shows a non-holographic color picture of a Multiplex hologram of a parrot sitting in a cage.
Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
