Magic of pop-up books endures

John and Heather Raybould will stage a display and talk about a fascinating selection of old and new pop-up books in their collection on Saturday, 2:30 p.m., at the Westbank library branch in Westridge Mall.

For many generations, children and their families have had lots of fun and interest with ingenious Moveable Books published in Europe and North America.

Some of the pop-up books in the show are 150 years old.

Many of the Movable Books in the presentation have been published more recently from Prague to New York and they are remarkable examples of the creative skills of today’s “paper engineers.”

At the show, you will see some of the work of Robert Sabuda of New York, who has designed amazing pop-up versions of beloved literary classics including Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Chronicles of Narnia.

For the Rayboulds, their collection of pop-up books is part of a lifelong hobby and keeps a vital link to our past in the ever changing technology of today.
