Go deeper into the Newberry exhibition Pop-Up Books through the Ages, which traces the extensive history of movable books. Learn how the art, science, and business of pop-up books evolved over hundreds of years.
In addition to exploring the past, the exhibition highlights the present and future of pop-up books, including the work of contemporary book and paper artists who are pushing the form in new directions. Two of these artists, Hannah Batsel and Shawn Sheehy, will be in conversation with curator Suzanne Karr Schmidt and art historian Juliet Sperling about all things pop-ups.
This program is being held in conjunction with the Newberry exhibition Pop-Up Books through the Ages, generously supported by The National Endowment for the Arts, the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, Professor James H. Marrow and Dr. Emily Rose, Alan Templeton, Diane and Richard Weinberg, and The Movable Book Society.
We look forward to seeing attendees at the Newberry, where you can now visit our reading rooms, exhibition galleries, and bookshop.
