Little Pop-up Books: Deconstructing Miniature Movable Structures

Little Pop-up Books: Deconstructing Miniature Movable Structures

Hospitality: 5:00 p.m.
Presentation: 6:00 p.m.

For those among us who are not paper engineers, pop-up books can seem magical and mysterious. For more than twenty years, Dorothy Yule has been exploring the world of pop-up and movable structures and learning how to use them in miniature books. Examining her own books as examples and using enlarged models of the structures, she will show how the mechanisms that create the illusions function.

Dorothy A. Yule started making books in primary school and eventually earned a Masters in Book Arts from Mills College. Her books tend to be small in size, written in verse, and often incorporate pop-ups. Her work has been exhibited and collected internationally, and awarded several prizes, including the Meggendorfer Prize for Artists Books from the Movable Book Society in 2014 and a Hedi Kyle Award from 23 Sandy Gallery in 2015.
