Holy paper engineering, Batman! A first look at DC Comics' upcoming pop-up book
In all the current hubbub over 3D, we tend to forget the original three-dimensional entertainment: Pop-up books. Pull here, twist there, spin the wheel; nothing can match the tactile nostalgia of pop-ups, and the folks over at DC Comics have picked up the ball. Little, Brown and Co. is set to publish DC Super Heroes: The Ultimate Pop-Up Book, a collection of paper-sculpted versions of their most popular characters. The book was designed by Matthew Reinhart, a leading pop-up artist, and is scheduled to hit bookstores in October, but for now check out the exclusive video after the jump of Reinhart showing off the Batman page.
What do you think, Shelf-Lifers? Are you fans of pop-ups? Doesn’t that Bat-Signal look pretty sweet?
