He frequently makes presentations in schools, explaining what paper engineers do and how they work with artists and writers to create pop-up books. He begins by talking about Disney’s film Enchanted, for which he designed the opening and closing pop-up scenes, and ends the talk with something that never fails to delight his young audiences — Harry Potter. Bruce will be signing copies of the Harry Potter Pop-up and Wow! The Pop-Up Book of Sports after the lecture.

    Is it possible to get the e-mail address for Bruce Foster, Jon Zastrow or others in the know.?
    We are the Paper Discovery Center located in Appleton, WI and have a large collection of Pop-up Books. Would like to have a Page Turner for an Exhibit.
    Please help.
