Book Arts Tuesday-The Pop-up Lady

Thank you to Lee Kirk for sharing this wonderful discovery on the Book Arts List. The Pop Up Lady introduces herself and her blog:

Welcome to the World of Pop-up and Movable Books!

The Popuplady is a writer, collector, curator, lecturer, and lover of the genre known as Pop-up and Movable Books. She invites you to explore her website to discover and experience the world of movable books and movable ephemera.

In this newly up-dated website, The Popuplady will do her best to bring you solidly, researched information as well as Trivia and Jokes [About Pop-ups].
If you are a return visitor, and I hope you will be, look for for up-dated information.

Did you know that

movable books date back to the 13th century
every movable book is hand-made, even today
movable books were originally made for adults and still are
the artists who animate the illustrations are called “Paper Engineers”
there is a Society for movable booklovers like the Popuplady?

If you're interested in pop ups, you'll find a wealth of information in many formats and news of events, exhibits, and new books. The image above is a pop up stamp from the Netherlands, one of the many links I followed.

"movable books were originally made for adults and still are"
i have found it is a rare, extremely mature child who manages to not destroy a popup book while appreciating it!
