Featuring a title from the Libraries’ pop-up book collection and current exhibition, Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn.
California-based children’s author and illustrator David Carter has created numerous colorful pop-up and movable books, beginning in the late 1980’s with a series featuring insects. Carter masterfully encourages the reader to discover— whether learning to count or finding something hidden in the book while, at the same time, experiencing the joy of surprise as figures pop-up off the page surface. One Red Dot consists of a series of pop-ups in which a red dot is hidden. The bold graphics and intricate sculptural forms truly make this book a portable work of art.—Stephen Van Dyk
