How to make a pop up book
Pop-up books are a type of movable book. The pages have three dimensions and can be opened or closed to create different scenes. Pop-up books are usually geared toward children, but they can be enjoyed by adults as well.
Movable books have been around for centuries, but the first pop-up book is generally credited to London publisher Lothian in 1825. The company produced a children’s book called “The Life and Adventures of William Tell” which included a pop-up scene of Tell shooting an apple off his son’s head.
Today, pop-up books come in a wide variety of formats, from simple lift-the-flaps to complex engineering feats. Some pop-ups are Canadian artist Robert Sabuda’s specialty. He has been creating intricate pop-ups for over 20 years and is best known for his “alphabet” and “numbers” pops.
