About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Vánocní Betlém [Bethlehem Christmas].

Description:

An uncommon die-cut pop-up card depicting a nativity scene set in ancient Bethlehem, beneath palm trees and a starry night sky. Cattle, goats, sheep, and an elephant surround the manger, as the magi and others bring gifts. Presiding over the scene is an angel carrying a banner proclaiming "Gloria in Excelsis Deo." Kubasta's clever technique interlocks two brightly-colored accordion-fold illustrations to create a three-dimensional panorama. Two additional interlocking pieces with cherubs, lambs, and a Christmas tree are designed to be placed in front of the display. In a recent New York Times feature on Kubasta, paper engineer Robert Sabuda, who was inspired by Kubasta's books at an early age, described Kubasta's work as unusual in that he was able to create astonishingly complex, detailed scenes with a single sheet of paper. His pop-up books are also known for their bold, rich color and were printed in Czechoslovakia on special pre-war presses at the state-run publishing house Artia. Measures approximately six inches (15cm) tall. Angel's wings are slightly bent, else a fine example of Kubasta's creative work. (Grimes, William, "Wizard Who Made Art Jump Off the Page," New York Times, Jan. 31, 2014). Bookseller Inventory #
