BestPopUpBooks would like to introduce to you, Keith Allen, an illustrator, designer and paper engineer who lives in Cleveland, Ohio with his lovely wife and children. Keith lives a busy life working as a designer at American Greetings by day and working on his personal projects by night. At 5am in the morning it’s time to get up and work on his childrens books!
Currently he is putting the finishing touches to his second pop-up book What a Mess, a cheerful and colorful pop-up book for children filled with wonderful illustrations and cool pop-up scenes. The book is now in final stages and if you’ve become curious already, you can follow the entire project from start to finish on instagram at 5am_popup!
Keith comes from a creative family and he has published a pop-up book earlier in 2012 together with his grandmother Joanne DeFiore and his brother Brian Allen. They’ve created a beautifully illustrated and designed pop-up book about their favorite summer destination, Rehoboth Beach. A Day in Rehoboth Beach guides you through all the famous spots of Rehoboth and is an absolute must have for those who love to visit or live in Rehoboth Beach! Visit By The Bay Books for more information.
We are very excited about the What a Mess pop-up book and we can’t wait to see the final result! Until then, we amuse ourselves with the beautiful photos and videos that Keith regularly posts on his Facebook and YouTube channel.
