An Insanely Detailed Pop Up Book

Who doesn’t love pop-up books? How about insanely detailed pop up books that have a following with adults as well as children?

Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Mega Beasts

According to The Cool Hunter:

Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart have taken it upon themselves to transform this childish novelty into something close to art. Their trilogy of pop-up books, known as Encylopedia Prehistorica, can easily claim to be among some of the most sophisticated books ever made. Ornate depictions of sharks and dinosaurs are painstakingly constructed from scratch to create and mimic the movements of the animals in their natural habitats.

You might want to keep an eye out for the author/creators next individual efforts, a Star Wars Pop Up book and a Chronicles of Narnia effort. Ah, nostalgia – breaking hearts and emptying wallets everywhere.

    I look forward to experiencing this incredible book some time soon.

    Love your blog. It is somewhat amusing, indeed.

  3. I’ve never seen his work before, Elliot, but I have to agree – awesome.

    Hey, Josh, welcome to Upper Fort Stewart and thanks for the compliment. I’m always glad to have new people pop-up when I open my browser. It’s way better than poker ads popping up.
