What's Popped Up: Movable Book Society Conference

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!!

The 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.

So 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!
