Sue Blackwell’s Books Are Exactly What Adult “Pop-Up” Books Should Be
Sue Blackwell is known for her ability to bring books to life through sculpture, literally constructing famous literary scenes out of the pages that make them up. But you can’t quite call her a “book carver.” Instead of carving images out of a book’s insides (as has become a rather popular hobby for reading enthusiasts over the past decade), she actually creates 3D scenery by “popping” the images up from the pages they inhabit.
Sticking with many of the classics, check out Blackwell’s work for depictions of Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and many other favorite fairy tales. You can even purchase some of her artwork off of her website, adding a true “pop-up” book to your own personal library. Kids shouldn’t be able to have all the fun, right?
