Pop-up Flashback – small book selection

August 19, 2016


The video shows pop-ups from the second children’s theatre production I co-created for Wordpepper which finished it’s final tour earlier this year. The show was presented by Half Moon Theatre in association with Apples and Snakes.

I made 19 pop-up books in total for the show, from very small to extremely large constructions which opened up to form the set. The video shows a small section of the smaller ones. These presented a type of illusion, being made to look like full books but often containing only one pop-up design to illustrate a moment in the show.

    …..This what I call absolutely brilliant. I have always been intrigued by pop -up books and when John did a little workshop with us at our writers group to test a new book he was working on…I loved being able to make my own. After learning that he also did theatrical pop up sets, I asked if I could come over to his workshop and view them. I wasn’t disappointed…in fact ever since I’ve been thinking about coming up with an idea to test his amazing skills! This latest blog of his gives you a taster….:)
