Telling Stories: Exploring Book Arts



"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: A Pop-up Adaptation"; Lewis Carroll, Robert Sabuda; Little Simon, New York, 2003. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is Robert Sabuda's most amazing creation ever, featuring stunning pop-ups illustrated in John Tenniel's classic style. The text is faithful to Lewis Carroll's original story, and special effects like a Victorian peep show, multifaceted foil, and tactile elements make this a pop-up to read and admire again and again.


"The Chronicles of Narnia"; C.S. Lewis, Robert Sabuda; Harper Collins Publishers, New York, 2007. C. S. Lewis's classic Narnia books spring to life in the hands of award-winning paper engineer Robert Sabuda. Each of the seven books in the series has its own pop-up spread rendered in spectacular detail with stunning special effects. Experience a different adventure from Narnia on every spread in this beautiful addition to the Narnia library—sure to enchant fans of both C. S. Lewis and Robert Sabuda.


"Horton Hears a Who

Pop-Up!"; Dr. Seuss, David Carter. Random House, Inc., 2008. Unlike other pop-up adaptations that use text abridgments, this book contains the complete text of Horton Hears a Who! David A. Carter has skillfully followed Seuss’s signature pacing by

alternating five big, blow-out pop-ups with 11 booklets, pull tabs galore, and many special effects. In all, ten glorious spreads bring this classic to life in magnificent full color.


"One Red Dot"; David Carter; Little Simon, New York, 2004. Each of the ten magnificent pop-up sculptures challenges readers to find the one red dot. From the flip-flop flaps to the whimsical wiggle-wobble widgets, each page is an original piece of artwork

to cherish and admire.
