About this Item

TWO hardcover books in SLIPCASE, HANDSIGNED + NUMBERED by creator ROBERT SABUDA in a pop-up inside the cover of the main pop-up book. Second book contains a single pop-up created for this Limited Edition. Both books are HANDSIGNED, the main pop-up book is hand-numbered as well. (It is #293 of only 500 copies.) The set is a U.S. 1st Edition/1st Printing. NEW condition without dustjackets (as issued). Both books have red cloth-covered boards with gilt lettering and a matching cloth-covered slipcase with satin ribbon that the books slide into. Twenty-six dazzling, magical pop-ups commemorate holiday sights and symbols in unforgettable ways. Most of the pop-ups themselves are white, which gives them an elegant, graceful look. Both books are in NEW/UNREAD condition with crisp, unopened pop-ups, and have only been opened to obtain the accompanying photos. It is from my personal collection and has been safely stored in its original shipping box in a glass bookcase since the day I bought it. A magnificent display of paper engineering and creativity from the undisputed leader of this modern art form. One of Sabuda's rarest Limited Editions -- this is the only copy available on ABE.

About this title

Synopsis:

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of THE CHRISTMAS ALPHABET, Sabuda has created a brand new pop-up to include in this special edition, which also has a brand new cover and is covered in green foil.

Celebrate Christmas with this beautiful pop-up alphabet book by award-winning author Robert Sabuda.

"The Christmas book of the year. Twenty-six dazzling, magical pop-ups commemorate holiday sights and symbols in unforgettable ways....Most of the pop-ups themselves are white, which gives them an elegant look, and Sabuda...has designed them all to move gracefully when the flaps are opened....Besides being an imaginative paper designer, Sabuda uses form, color, and space expertly....Just terrific. "
-- Pointer, KIRKUS REVIEW

Review:

Who can resist opening a door or lifting a flap just to see what's inside? No one. And that's why this seasonal, alphabetical pop-up book has become such a Christmas favorite. Beneath each lettered flap is an intricate three-dimensional paper cutout of a holiday-related object that starts with the same letter (A for angel, B for bell, C for candle). The cutouts, emerging from colorful squares, are all made of crisp white paper--creating an origami elegance. Yet the paper sculptures are decidedly joyful and unpredictable, like the exploding shreds of paper beside the title "unwrap" under the letter U. Robert Sabuda made his first pop-up book when he was 8 years old, but abandoned the art when he failed to figure out how to make the cyclone twirl in The Wizard of Oz. Apparently, he's finally mastered the art of motion, since many of the pop-ups feature movements such as flight for the angel, and the tender joining of lips for the kiss of two reindeer. Sabuda has also mastered the art of whimsy, making The Christmas Alphabet, The 12 Days of Christmas, and Cookie Count seasonal staples in households of children young and old.
