I've been teaching myself how to make pop-up books. What fun. The more time i spend in the world of digital communication the more i want to make books - feel the turn of pages, hold the weight of a book in hand. And pop-ups are enchanting. If you're in Toronto between now and June 3 you should pay a visit to a wonderful exhibit of pop-up books at the Lillian H. Smith branch of the Toronto Public Library: Books as Toys: The History and Art of Pop-Ip and Movable Books. I've also found a wonderful teaching book for pop-ups: The Pocket Paper Engineer by Carol Barton.
