Pop-Up Books

While in Providence, Rhode Island I saw the exhibit at Rhode Island School of Design’s Fleet Library.  From now until September 24th, the exhibit “Pull, Turn, Pop: A Feast of Movable Books” is on display.  The exhibit features 30 of the 100 pop-up books in Fleet Library’s collection. The library is closed August 16 – 27 for summer break.

While many of the books portrayed works of fiction, I was surprised to see how many non-fiction titles were on display. I especially liked the one about the art of creating pop-up books. Most of them are in the entryway display cases, but don’t miss out on the six which are located in a case on the balcony.
