A new exhibit opened at the National Museum of American Historian in Washington D.C. It is an exhibit about the art and history and how-to of pop-up books entitled: "Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop, and Turn.”
Some fantastic stuff is on display and I highly recommend you check this out.
I know this is not a New York event I am plugging, but a New York filmmaker and good friend of mine, Sean McGee, directed and produced the excellent video that loops during the exhibit.
The video explains in a straightforward manner how pop-up books are made and features another talent and friend, Chuck Fischer, a well-known pop-up book master.
The exhibit is on now until September 1, 2011, so no excuses! Plus it is DC so it is FREE!!
