[BKARTS] Carol Barton Lecture at UVM: The History of Pop-Up and Movable Books



The Craft Emergency Relief Fund and the Special Collections Department of the
Bailey/Howe Library at the University of Vermont are pleased to announce a
co-sponsored lecture with renowned paper engineer and book artist, Carol Barton: 

 

The History of Pop-Up and Movable Books

 

This 50-minute slide show begins with the development of
movable page formats within early Renaissance science texts that employ
volvelles and lift-up flap mechanisms. Movable illustrations from astronomical,
navigational, mathematical and medical books will be shown. The presentation
will also include a discussion of childrens’ pop-up books from the 19th and
20th centuries, along with examples of current commercial and artist-made
dimensional books. The lecture includes discussions of die-cutting and
hand-assembly processes used in the modern manufacture of pop-up books.

 

Author Carol Barton is a book artist, curator, and teacher who
runs Popular Kinetics Press and has been teaching classes in making pop-ups for
over 25 years. Her pop-up illustrations have been featured in National
Geographic Magazine and her books have been exhibited internationally and are
collected by the Getty Museum, New York’s Museum
of Modern Art, and London’s
Victoria and Albert Museum,
among others. She is on the faculty of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and lives in the charming historic community
of Glen Echo, MD, in the suburbs of Washington,
 DC.
