Mini Pop-up Book

This may be the season for beautiful pop-up books. Here’s one that’s portable, affordable and clever.  

“The Metropolitan Museum of Art; A 3D Expanding Pocket Guide,” illustrated by Sarah McMenemy; Candlewick Press/MMA, $8.99, 30 pages, ages 4 and up.


This lovely 3D pocket guide is the latest in a series which began as charming mementos for major world cities such as London, Paris, and Washington D.C. The yellow slipcased miniature barely scales three inches in height, but reaches five feet in length when fully extended.  The guide highlights thirteen top galleries, from the Great Hall to the Modern Art Gallery, and veteran illustrator Sarah McMenemy’s soft and inviting watercolors on cut paper make this souvenir as vibrant as the works of art themselves.
