Description

Whether you’re a young child or a design connoisseur, the clever associations in this diminutive pop-up will charm you in a big way.

A is for Apple, springing up to attention. B is for Book, its pages flapping. F is for Flower, of course, but is that G tucked away in the grass? Hugely enjoyable from the first glance, this small-scale, 3-D look at everyday objects offers many hidden pleasures, such as when adjacent alphabet letters share a spread in unexpected ways — a Letter in a Mailbox, a Pillow on a Quilt, twisty Roots under a Swing on a Tree. Simple and stylish, ABC Pop-Up is an elegant choice for anyone who appreciates artful design, as well as the perfect alphabet learning tool for little hands.

Praise For ABC Pop-Up

In the spirit of Marion Bataille’s ABC3D, this spare, compact pop-up book combines elegant paper engineering with a subtle seek-and-find mission as it moves through the alphabet...readers young and old will be impressed by how much fun McCarthy packs into a small package.
