The most collectible pop-up title you'll find today on ABE, this 10th Anniversary book was released in 2004 by the Movable Book Society as a retrospective of the art form of movable books. It contains pop-up and movable reproductions from some of the most famous historical creators in the field, including reproductions of historical creators Matthew Paris, Robert Sayer, Dean & Son, Lother Meggendorfer, Ernest Nister, S. Louis Giraud, Harold B. Lentz, Julian Whr, Geraldine Clyne, Vojtech Kubasta, and Ib Penick. In addition, each pop-up cover includes a biography of the original artist written by members of the MBS (Robert Sabuda, Ann R. Montanaro, and Ellen G. K. Rubin). All in all, a fascinating look at the history of pop-up books, and a remarkable piece of memorabilia. Check out my many other signed pop-up books and limited editions also listed on ABE.
