The Most Beautiful Pop-up Books I Have Ever Seen! Giveaway!


Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of each book.  Post contains affiliate links. 

As dynamic as they are beautiful, butterflies and fish have always had a unique way of mesmerizing children and adults alike. Combining exquisite design and paper craft with fascinating facts, renowned paper engineer David Hawcock has created two irresistible volumes with BUTTERFLIES: POP-UP and TROPICAL FISH: POP-UP. In vibrant spreads where the creatures practically fly and swim off the page, Hawcock demonstrates his masterful ability to capture the lightness, colorful variety, and graceful motion of his subjects.

BUTTERFLIES showcases the beauty of the Blue Morphos, Peacock Butterflies, and Atlas moths as they prepare to take flight. TROPICAL FISH displays exotic angel fish and clownfish, regal seahorses, and flesh-eating piranhas as one would see them darting among the reefs and coral of their natural habitats.

I would have to say butterflies interest me more only because I am a gardener and love seeing them visit.

Sandy Weinstein

Cheryl Chervitz

I am most interested in butterflies. They are so beautiful.

John Smith

"What interests you more? Tropical Fish or Butterflies?" I like them both in different ways. Butterflies are very beautiful, but I'd like to keep a fish tank someday, just so I can have little fish swimming about!
