Pop-up Classics-Videos

The Popuplady is grateful that such capable people made these videos possible. There is only one better way to enjoy pop-up books. Get a copy and play with it yourself!

Inside The Personal Computer, 1984, engineered by the great Ron Van der Meer, is a true classic pop-up.

Random House produced a whole series of pop-up books in the 1970s, many engineered by the legendary, Ib Penick. Here is his Star Wars#35, 1978; The Empire Strikes Back#41, 1980 and Return of the Jedi#41, 1983, the last in the Random House series.[Thanks to popupfan for making these.]
