The Flyleaf: IOBA Newsletter

Pop-Up books are a part of the broader category of Moveable Books, which are physically interactive with the reader. In this Flyleaf we’ll look at a few of the Pop-Ups published for children.

 

In the very early 19th century the first books for children using pop-up mechanics were published in Britain and Germany. They were expensive to produce and were not published in great numbers. Today Pop-Ups are still hand-produced and amazingly complex.
