Books that pop

I like paper. I like its potential, whether something is made with it or recorded on it. So when I heard about the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts show called A Moveable Feast, I was intrigued. It’s a whole show devoted to “Pop-ups, Volvelles, Tunnels, Flaps and other Movable Books” – a whole show devoted to art from paper. The exhibition is free, open to the public, and runs through September 23, from 10 am to 6 pm, Mondays through Saturdays. And tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m., there will be “a presentation by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart, two designers and paper engineers very much on the scene today, along with several members of their staff, as they take us through the intracacies of producing a commercial pop-up book today.” Cool.
