Pop-Up! Illustration in 3-D


Dec 27, 2012 to Jan 6, 2013


With the element of surprise and the excitement of motion, pop-up books delight everyone.  Pop-Up! Illustration in 3-D presents a selection of pop-up books that range from late 19th century examples to the sophisticated constructions designed by contemporary paper engineers such as David Carter, Chuck Fischer, Bruce Foster, Chuck Murphy, Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda.  To show the complexity of the artist/illustrator’s process, the exhibition includes pre-production mock-ups by Chuck Fischer, Edward Gorey and Robert Sabuda.  The exhibition is drawn largely from the extensive collection of Ann Montanaro Staples, founder of The Movable Book Society and preeminent authority on movable books.
