The Magic Lantern is the father of the motion picture and the great uncle of the television. It evolved from the shadows of those first projections made with only a fire, hands and a rock wall. These pages tell of those who have gone before and how they helped to develop the entertainment revolution of the GasLight Era. The author also chronicles, through his articles, the story of the Lantern's modern day growth in how people have found each other, organized, entertain, and share their experiences and knowledge. This little book contains many images of artifacts that reflect the Magic of the Lantern. It is a tribute to the charm of an historical entertainment medium.
