Pop-ups! They're not JUST for kids!
"Pop-ups!" features more than 150 items from the Harold M. Goralnick (Class of 1971) Pop-up Book Collection, which numbers over 1,800 volumes and was donated to the College in 2008. Although we usually think of children's books when we see "pop-ups," these are definitely not all just for children—erotica, architecture, and political commentary join such predictable themes as fairy tales, rhymes and verse, the alphabet and counting, and animals, to name a few. Displayed works range from the late nineteenth century to the present and also include artists' books that employ pop-up features in their design. Second floor, Bowdoin College Library - Brunswick, Maine. (January 27-June 4, 2011)
"This is an extraordinary collection, and it instantly places Bowdoin among the nation's top repositories for 'toy and movable books,'" said Richard Lindemann, director of special collections.
