The myriorama was a popular amusement during the nineteenth century. The first references are found in 1830 in the city of Leipzig (Germany), subsequently spreading throughout Europe during the nineteenth century.
It is illustrated with a collection of fragments of a scene, typically a landscape cards. Each card is drawn so that the image lines on the sides coincide with those of any other card, and can be therefore combined all together randomly. Thus continuous images can be constructed by arranging cards in a row, one beside the other, in any order. The number of distinct possibility of building a miriorama images is given by the number "n" of possible permutations for cards, where "n" is the number of the cards making up the miriorama. This amount, the factorial of"n", is astronomical even for relatively small values of "n" and hence the origin of the word whose origin "myriad" means a very large and unspecified number of things, in this case of different landscapes. It is accompanied by a brief history.
