Moveable and pop-up books Library Expeditions 3
Melbourne Rare Book Week
Pop-up books invite readers to participate in story, combining imaginative inspiration in pictures and text with moveable parts. This presentation explores developments in paper engineering from concertina books to complex pop-ups from the 19th century to today, showcasing early works published by Ernest Nister and Raphael Tuck, and contemporary creations by Robert Sabuda, David Carter, Sam Ita and David Pelham.
Please note: this talk is for an adult audience.
Juliet O'Conor is the Children's Research Librarian at State Library Victoria. She has specialised in narrative analysis and literary history in her publications, including Bottersnikes and other lost things (2009) and the forthcoming book of her thesis on Indigenous Australian children's books.
