Three reasons this summer is awesome: I got to work in the studio and learn how to make pop-ups, the Olympics were amazing, and the Movable Book Society is about to have its 9th biennial conference in Salt Lake City!!
Movable Book Society was founded in 1993 as a way for collectors,
artists, curators, booksellers, book producers, and anybody who loves
pop-up and movable books to get together and share their enthusiasm for
the art. This year’s conference should not disappoint with
presentations from Chuck Fischer, Andrew Baron, Robert Sabuda, and a whole lot more! There will also be workshops and demonstrations
where visitors have the opportunity to get their hands dirty and make
some of their own pop-ups as well as a tour of local book studios and a
pop-up exhibit from the collection of Ann Montanaro Staples.
if you want to meet a bunch of awesome people who love pop-ups as much
as you, you can find all of the information you need and a registration
form at the Movable Book Society conference website, but act fast because early registration for the conference ends on Wednesday, August 22nd!
