"Celebrating the Art and Design of Pop-Up; Books" lecture and demonstration took place in Manning Hall on April 8, 2013. SILS Librarian, Rebecca Vargha, discussed the history of the pop-up books and demonstrated the complexity of the beautiful books that literally pop-up off the pages. SILS graduate student, Anne Miller, led those in attendance through the creation of their own pop-up art project. Photos of the event are available on the SILS Flickr site.
The SILS Library has an extensive collection of pop-up books, many which were shared during the lecture and celebration of the art and design of this unique book art form.
