Having addressed my literary bona fides this morning, I now feel comfortable blogging about pop-up books. Call it my guilty pleasure, but I have always had a thing for pop-up books. Books like 600 Black Spots, A Pop-Up Book for Children of All Ages, by David A. Carter.
I even own a pop-up book about how to make pop-up books, The Elements of Pop-Up by David A. Carter and James Diaz. So I know a little bit about parallel folds and angle folds, about one-ply and two-ply.
But my favorite pop-up book, without question is The Pop-up Book of Phobias, by Gary Greenberg. Pick a page. Any page.
Perhaps you’re afraid of dentists.
Or perhaps (and this is, finally, the purpose of the post) you’re like my friend Mrs. OBL, who is afraid that she will fail to complete her two-item list today, the second item being to post a photo of her toilet on wordpress.
