Love Pop-up World!

Have you ever heard of Pop-Up Books? Pop-up books have pictures that move as you turn the pages or pull on tabs. Full of surprises and fun, these books feature movements that delight and charm readers of all ages. Compared to a typical picture book that has been printed on flat pages, pop-up books require taking special steps to be created. How pop-up books are created demonstrates each of the processes involved, from the initial structural drawing of a book to cutting out its figures and finally putting the whole thing together. Follow the creation of Angel Smile, published by Shufunotomo, to learn all the tricks behind how a pop-up book is made, in this informative exhibit that is fun for the entire family.
