We think that you, as a pop-up book collector or paper engineer, might be interested in an regular update about upcoming pop-up books. A lot of new books will be released this year and some are definitely worth mentioning. You may have already discovered our new page with an overview of the books that we can expect this year but there’s more to share. Here is a summary of the latest pop-up book news.
What a Mess a 5:00 am Pop-up project at Kickstarter
Soon there will be another great pop-up book project at Kickstarter. We already introduced Keith Allen and his amazing project before. The talented illustrator, designer and paper engineer who gets up early (5:00 am) every day to work at the amazing What a mess pop-up book. His project has taken an exciting turn after an exhaustive search for an agent and publisher. Keith has decided to raise funds through crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to make his pop-up book happen. He needs your help to make it possible to produce and publish this pop-up book. More about this very soon. We will keep you informed about news and developments and let you know right away when his KickStarter project starts. We would love to see this book on Amazon but therefor, we first need to help Keith to fund his project and who knows what will happen!
Keith Allen FaceBook
My next step will be a Kickstarter campaign to collect enough pre-orders to cover production costs. I know that kickstarter can be even more challenging, so please help spread the word and keep an eye out if you’d like to pre-order. Thanks for all the love and support!!!
Don’t forget to follow, share and support Keith Allen’s project. His FaceBook page is a joy to follow. We promise that as soon we can get a copy, we will make a video review and share it with you. Follow and support Keith Allen and his project at Facebook.
Upcoming Junko Mizuno book by Poposition Press
We all know the Pop-Up Art Book right? A unique indie project published by Poposition Press where street art and comics meet pop-ups. We have very exiting news for those who loved the Pancake spread illustrated by Junko Mizuno! Rosston Meyer is working on a Junko Mizuno pop-up book and what we’ve seen so far looks great and promising! It will be a translation of Mizuno’s artwork, engineered in 3D pop-ups. Who’s interested can follow Rosston and the progress of his projects at his FaceBook page that is stuffed with very interesting content. We will let you know when we have more information about how and where to order this upcoming art book but you can already dive into some behind-the-project footage at the Poposition FaceBook page.
New Robert Sabuda release: The Christmas Story
Long ago in the town of Bethlehem, on a bright and starry night, a baby was born, a child who was called the son of God… Do we need to say more? This is great news for all Sabuda fans out there. Another upcoming pop-up book that we are exited about is Robert Sabuda’s newest Christmas pop-up book title: The Christmas Story. It contains six pop-up scenes and linting with touches of gold and pearlescent foil. Sabuda is known for his best selling classic Christmas pop-up books so this new title is something worth waiting for. We think this will be an already classic Christmas pop-up title. As a gift for Christmas or of course, for yourself to make your Sabuda Christmas pop-up book collection complete. This new pop-up book will be released ahead of Christmas at September 27, 2016 but if you want to be first, you can already pre-order it at Amazon.
Trains: A Pop-Up Railroad Book (reissue)
Paper engineer Robert Crowther, who also created Ships: A Pop-Up Book, comes with a reissue of a similar styled pop-up book called Trains: A Pop-Up Railroad Book. There’s some confusion about the publication date but right now, on Amazon, this edition of Trains is available from May 24, 2016 and ready to pre-order. For those who missed the first train…
Pre-order Trains: A Pop-Up Railroad Book
The Raven (Art Pop-up book?)
A new title that got our attention is the Raven Pop-up book. We cant wait to see how it looks like when a book created by paper engineer David Pelham (Trail) gets together with illustrations of Chris Wormell and the story of the Raven written by Edgar Allan Poe. The cover shows an almost Frank Miller like, dark artwork in the graphic (cut out/stamp) style of Wormell. It already invites you to take a look inside. Release date: August 9, 2016.
Pre-order The Raven Pop-Up Book
Artwork LEGO Pop-Up cover and ready to pre-order
Yes, we are exited about every book created by Matthew Reinhart. Who isn’t?! Every little bit of news we can share, we share. This time we can tell something more about the new LEGO Pop-Up book. It’s ready to pre-order and we’ve found new cover artwork on Amazon! And maybe soon, we might have more to share…
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pop-Up Book (Delayed)
We have to wait a little longer before we can enjoy the newest Insight Editions Pop-up book title by David Hawcock the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Pop-Up Book. It was announced to be released at May 2016 but right now it’s temporarily set to “Currently unavailable”. We’re sure it will be worth waiting for. We will let you know when it’s ready to pre-order again and when it comes out, we will certainly do a video review about this book so make sure you wont miss it!
