Featuring a title from the Libraries’ pop-up book collection and current exhibition, Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn.
Marion Bataille, a French graphic artist and illustrator who works for the Pompidou Centre and Le Monde, has crafted this clever pop-up/movable book alphabet book. Each letter is represented in diverse ways— a mirror situated on an adjacent page transforms a “v” into a “w”, and a translucent screen superimposed over a page makes an “O” into a “Q”, a “P” into an “R”, an “I” and a “J” share a dot, and many letters pop-up into 3-dimensional forms.—Stephen Van Dyk
