This is the page The Popuplady has been waiting to give you, a place where visitors can either interact with movable books or watch as they pop-up, fold, slide, turn, or pirouette off the page.
Looking at a still image of a movable book is like trying to appreciate a ballet by seeing one single movement. With the miracle of video and flash, The Popuplady can share with other devotees of pop-up books their unique characteristic, movement!
I believe the movable book will never be fully replaced by a virtual one. There cannot be a substitution for taking one's two hands and manipulating pages, a pull-tab, or wheel and making an illustration move in concert with one's own timing and duration. In Make it move yourself! you can animate the illustrations by famous paper engineers yourself.
Roll your cursor over the boxes to make the merry images by Julian Wehr and Lothar Meggendorfer move! [Confession by The Popuplady, my favorite is Food Fight!] Or, link to The Morgan Libary & Museum website, to experience being the owner of a vast estate and lift the flaps by world-renowned landscape designer, Humphry Repton, to see how he has re-designed your acreage.
Don't miss the Anatomical Flap books from the 16th to the 21st century, in ACTION, presented by Duke University. Learn about the exhibition which ended in July 2011.
If you have found a video the Pop-up World should view, alert The Popuplady.
