'Daily Express children's annual' (1931)
Louis Giraud's cut-out pop-up components, like this pagoda scene for the 'Bookano' series, were delivered to a team of workers who put them together at home. Once assembled and collected they were pasted into each volume.
'Orlando's country peepshow' (1951)
In a 'carousel' or 'star' book, like the 'Orlando's country peepshow' book, a circular form is created when the front and back covers are tied together.
These books featured in the pop-up and movable books display at the National Library of Scotland from 20 November 2013 to 19 January 2014.
