Pop-up Books


Zachary Sniderman discusses the fate of pop-up books in an age of electronic entertainments.  And Robert Sabuda reminds us, in his Alice in Wonderland,  that you can still compete with John Tenniel.

Are pop-up books dying? We remember pulling our first paper tab and seeing a book miraculously come to life. But a lot of kids these days are getting that kick on iPads and other fancy tablets. Which makes one wonder if the steady stream of interactive ebooks aimed at kids means that this generation won’t have childhood memories of Pat the Bunny, Where’s Spot, or Peter Rabbit?


One thought on “Pop-up Books

  1. I think that pop-up books will always find a place, whether for kids or adults. After all, altered books are huge and they are, essentially, homemade pop-up books.
