Pop-ups! They’re Not JUST for Kids

A new exhibition at Bowdoin College showcases pop-up books—for children and adults—from the Harold M. Goralnick (Class of ’71) Pop-up Book Collection. The exhibition, which is open to the public free of charge, is located on the second floor of Bowdoin’s Hawthorne-Longfellow Library and runs through June 5, 2011.

Incredible craft.

I used to love my Walt Disney Studio “The Black Hole” pop-up book. Still got it somewhere!!
