April 25, 2011

Pop-up collection at Bowdoin is drawing visitors

Thank you to Chris Toy for sending this information….

Not only can you travel to Bowdoin College to see the enormous collection of pop-up books but you can see part of the collection on Vimeo. The video is embedded below.

A new exhibition at Bowdoin College showcases pop-up books—for children and adults—from the Harold M. Goralnick (Class of ’71) Pop-up Book Collection. The exhibition, which is open to the public free of charge, is located on the second floor of Bowdoin’s Hawthorne-Longfellow Library. It runs through June 5, 2011. The George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives exhibition, is available online. The web version includes descriptions for all of the items in the show, and includes all of the text, but images for only a selection of the displayed items.
