Artist Kelli Anderson created something amazing when she designed This Book Is a Camera. Yes, it is a pop-up book…but the title isn’t lying. It’s a camera, too. The book folds up into a simple pinhole camera and it can really take a picture. (After all, cameras aren’t that complicated when you get down to it.)

A pinhole camera is also known as a cameraobscura. According to Wikipedia, it is a “simple optical imaging device in the shape of a closed box or chamber. In one of its sides is a small hole which, via the rectilinear propagation of light, creates an image of the outside space on the opposite side of the box.
