These images have been floating all around the web lately, but the attention is well-deserved, and I wanted to make sure you all saw them too!
These silhouettes are from The Adventures of Prince Achmed, which is the oldest animated feature length film that still survives. It was released in 1926, and though there were older animated films, those are lost to us. As you might have guessed, The Adventures of Prince Achmed was created using silhouette animation – and these silhouettes are pretty exquisite!
