A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering


Limited-Edition, pop-up alphabet collection available now!

The Movable Book Society is pleased to unveil A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering, a special collection of 26 individual pop-up cards in a custom box.

This limited-edition collection—only 2,000 copies— was designed by some of the most talented paper engineers in the world, both here in the U.S. and abroad.

Each full-color pop-up card, produced in a variety of finishes on high quality stock, includes the artist’s image and their story of inspiration

The collection is housed in a custom clamshell box designed by Isabel Uria, includes a bonus pop-up card engineered by Bruce Foster, and features a brief history of The Movable Book Society by Ann Montanaro Staples, along with an introductory essay by collector-of-note Larry Seidman.

A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering celebrates the 25th anniversary of The Movable Book Society—a non-profit forum for artists, collectors, librarians and others who love, create, share and study three-dimensional and pop-up books.
