The hologram is not bound into the book — it is fitted into a special page sleeve from which it may be removed. Printed on the opposite page are these details about how the image was created:
"Chaim Weizmann Peers Into The Future: The Vision Lives On"
The "Tomorrow" hologram, which was specifically created for this book, is actually three holograms in one — each produced separately and then combined through multiple exposures and very tight registration tolerances.
First, a hologram was made of a futuristic head and robot "hand." The images were positioned to appear both behind the film plane (holographic plate surface) and a few millimeters in front.
A second hologram was made of a plaster bust of Chaim Weizmann. A masked, circular opening was placed in front of the bust during exposure and then registered through multiple exposures to coincide with the exact position of the projected circular disc held by the robot hand.
The hologram in this book is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Holography on New York City."
Polaroid's Mirage process
Polaroid (USA) developed a high quality photopolymer called DMP-128. The process allowed light to reflect through several layers of film to give the hologram more depth, and it was easily visible in a wide range of lighting conditions. The result was a distinct improvement over embossed holograms.
The Polaroid photopolymer material was not for sale — only ready-made holographic images were supplied, under the trade name Mirage.
In 1998, Polaroid abandoned display holography.
A worthy addition to even the most advanced collection of holography.
