Pop-Up books

11Apr08

This book by Carol Barton is called Five Luminous Towers. It was inspired by the historic towers of Italy. Every other page has a paper tower that pops off the page and also lights up in the dark via a ring of fiber optic filaments. The way that it folds in and out of a box case is quite lovely.

This came from an exhibition called The Book As Art: Twenty Years of Artists’ Books from the National Museum of Women in the Arts at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington. There is an interactive tool on the site which allows you to flick through some of the books in the exhibition. Link >

Thanks to Bibliodyssey for the link.
