Movable, pop-up, folding and multiple-construction books from the year 1570 to the present day comprise this Smithsonian Institution Libraries' exhibition highlighting innovative book design. The exhibition features the art of paper engineering in the production of books with moving parts, such as peep shows, volvelles, accordion books and pop-up books, published from the 15th century to modern times. Viewers will receive an in-depth look at the structure and design of pop-up and movable books, with over 50 works demonstrating the diverse methods designers and paper engineers use to magically transform flat, static images in basic paper constructions into dynamic, multi-dimensional forms.
