A true holiday classic literally comes to life in this stunning pop-up edition of a seasonal favorite. This beautiful anniversary package is a single to treasure! With a partridge popping, snow scattering, and lords a-leaping off the page, this lavish book is genuinely a gift for readers of all ages. The ornament is packaged with all the book and is perfect for adding a celebratory touch to your tree. For this special anniversary edition legendary paper engineer Robert Sabuda encloses his personal gifts towards the reader: extra pages with a pop-up Christmas tree with real lights aglow, too as a beautiful pop-up ornament of two turtledoves.
Robert Sabuda is to pop-up art what the International Grandmaster is always to chess, and it isn't for nothing that he's described on the back of this book as a"paper engineer. Sabuda's masterful The 12 Days of Christmas is complete of nostalgia for the magic of childhood celebration--kids and adults alike would be happy to get this book as a holiday gift. Other pop-ups are more characteristically bravura creations: the"Ten pipers piping"are crafted explicitly as decorative paper cut-outs, but the scissors that cut them are part with the pop-up, too. Some are relatively simple, such as the partridge (made of just two pieces of hinged paper) that opens its wings above some pears. (Ages 3 to 103) --Richard Farr Still, there is something unexpectedly bold about how the bird literally flies out more than the top margin from the page."Interpreted as an old-fashioned music box, the 11 ladies dancing are tiny ballerinas, and also the music box is complete with drawer, back-mirror, and winding key. Perhaps basically the most complex from the set is"Eleven Ladies Dancing."As the title suggests, this whimsical, old-fashioned, elegant book embodies the Classic Song of Abundant Giving--each verse of"The 12 Days of Christmas"is illustrated with a various pop-up creation.
