Out Popped Summer: Bugs, Beaches, and Blossoms

July 5, 2017

Wheels, pull-tabs, and folds…oh my!  On view is a sampling of the Kohler Art Library’s amazing collection of pop-up books.  The sixteen examples on display celebrate and embrace the season of summer.  The simple pleasures of going to a fair, walking in a park, relaxing at a seashore, observing the beauty and wonders of nature, reading and acting out stories, and traveling to far off become three-dimensional and interactive in these books.  These adventures, and many more, literally pop off the page in vibrant, lively, and masterful works of paper engineering. See full article.

On view at the Kohler Art Library from July 3 – August 31, 2017.
