Many will relate to movable and pop-up books as toys whose primary purpose is to
entertain children and adults. Tunnel books or peep-shows, (accordion books that when extended allow the viewer to see a spatial area in perspective) continue to amuse children of all ages. The exhibition Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn will also include clever flap books that reveal answers to riddles or
show cartoon-like characters when lifted.
Many works, as seen in Cinderella and the Glass Slipper and Ali Baba—retell familiar fairy tales in stage-like settings. The brightly colored figures and animals—illustrating old and new storie—exhibited throughout the show—will entice all viewers.—Elizabeth Periale
