Giraud's Bookano Book

S. Louis Giraud produced a series of pop-up books beginning in the early part of the 20th century and ending in 1949. He, along with Theodore Brown, created the 1st page-activated pop-up. One of Giraud's innovations was to "hide" a fairy on acetate that could be seen when held up to the light.
