There are many books about collecting kaleidoscopes, but very few about creating them. The few I have found about building kaleidoscopes are either very technical or the designs are so simplistic that they are hardly worth making.

Gary Newlin's book is perfect: There are 24 ingenious designs made with easy-to-find objects. The beginning section has enough technical information that you can understand the basics of designing mirror systems (materials, angles, lengths)and housing them safely. The second section has color photos of some truly inspirational 'scopes to show you where you can go with kaleidoscope design. And, of course, the last section has well-illustrated, detailed instructions for building 24 'scopes.

Any artist would enjoy this book, and it should be in every K-12 science or math teacher's arsenal. It's out-of-print, so if you see a copy, grab it!
