10 Crazy Pop Up Books (almost)

I noticed the word ‘POP’ seems to be at the forefront of my lexicon when describing visual beauty and / or exciting stimuli. To help get me through my POP phase I compiled a video post of pop-up books, pop-up rooms, pop up theater even an electronic paper pop-up Venus Fly Trap that POP’s and bites back.

First off…

The Ice Book

The Ice Book is the story of a princess who lures a boy into the forest in order to warm her heart of ice. The performance blends animation, puppetry, and film to bring a pop-up book vividly to life in front of the audience’s eyes. The Icebook is available for touring. For information on touring dates or bookings in 2011 check the website: theicebook.co



From the lenticular cover that changes with the angle of your hands, all the way to the Z, ABC3D is as much a work of art as it is a pop-up book. Each of the 26 dimensional letters move and change before your eyes. C turns into D with a snap. M stands at attention. X becomes Y with a flick of the wrist. And then there’s U… Boldly conceived and brilliantly executed with a striking black, red, and white palette, this is a book that readers and art lovers of all ages will treasure for years to come.

A book alphabet by Marion Battles

– The alphabet in volume is connected in the shape of an edition bearing the name of the character. The alphabet with an architectural aspect and the impact of the light make it possible to better reveal volumes of the letters.

– Each letter is built on the same principle of folding and starting from a simple sheet A4 Bristol-board.
