Pop-Up and Movable Books: A Tour Through Their History

This site contains a historical sketch of pop-up and movable books. It focuses on books published after 1850, with the exception of paper dolls by S & J Fuller. The purpose of the site is to give an overview of the important artists and publishers involved in creation and distribution of novelty books and, just as importantly, to provide an image for the examples described whenever possible. Although the images are unable to mimic entirely the interactivity of the spectacular originals, a lot of the images are animated to depict the scenes in action. The books featured are part of the Gustine Courson Weaver Collection at the University of North Texas Libraries.
