Oz in the News 12.19.10

Beyond the Printed Page: Robert Sabuda is the superstar of the modern pop-up book Unlike e-books, a well-loved movable book may eventually be too pooped to pop.  The Wizard of Oz opens with a cyclone that rises nine inches from the page and whirls around with a dowel and a string. Sabuda fans often bring that book to his in-store signings.  “It’s not unusual that when I open it, there’s no cyclone, or sometimes just a string, and yet they bring that book,” he observes. And that moves him. “It means it’s important, it’s made an impression and it’s had a life of its own in your life,” Sabuda adds. “You just can’t get that with an e-reader.”
