The Raven: Pop Up Book

Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” is one of the most widely recognized poems in the English language. When it first appeared in the New York Evening Mirror in 1845, the poem made Poe an overnight sensation. Master paper engineer David Pelham amazes us once again with his pop-up design interpreting this haunting love story.

My thoughts
I am not by any stretch of the imagination an Edgar Allan Poe fan but I adore this edition of this book. It is the most intricate and beautiful pop up book I have ever seen, Each page is a work of art in itself and utterly stunning. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves below but essentially if you love books you will adore this.

If you think this is an "intricate and beautiful" pop-up book, I have a few other paper-engineers to recommend. Robert Sabuda (my personal fav), Matthew Reinhart, and Sam Ita. I recommend looking at Sabuda's "Alice in Wonderland" or "Wizard of Oz" Pop-ups. They are the reason I started collecting pop-ups and were the first ones I owned. I've been collecting about 13 years now. This one is nice and I just might add it to my collection. I've never heard of this paper engineer before either. I now have a new one to keep my eye on.
