"Parrots of the Jungle" Hologram
|You are looking at a picture of the first fully dimensional,
full-color photopolymer hologram ever published on the cover of a book. In fact, to our
knowledge, it is the first time this type of mass produced hologram has been presented to
a worldwide audience (outside a holography science conference). It was made by Dai Nippon
Printing Co. Ltd. (of Japan) using a panchromatic holographic recording material developed
To date, Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) is the only company in the world that has demonstrated the willingness and the ability to combine all the components (panchromatic film, multiple lasers, specially designed replication equipment) needed to mass-produce bright, high quality holograms that are fully dimensional and realistically colored. You will find more detailed information about the process used to make this particular hologram in Chapter Six. Other companies that are pursuing related work with color photopolymer holograms are also profiled.
It is a great honor for Ross Books to feature one of these magnificent new DNP holograms on the cover of the Holography MarketPlace 8th Ed. It is a first for the holography industry and the publishing industry as well. We are proud to commemorate the first 50 years of holography with such a hologram and sincerely believe that it represents an important and invigorating development in our industry.
