Celebrated children's books creators Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart are the best-known pop-up book artists working today. Sabuda, originally from Pinckney, Michigan, and Reinhart, originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, work in a shared studio in New York, and the two have created a series of hand-crafted pop-up books that are both intriguing and breathtaking at the turn of every page.

Wizards of Pop! Sabuda & Reinhart  includes more than 80 images from 16 picture and pop-up books. The book art reveals a variety of media and techniques — with picture book illustrations in batik, marbleized paper mosaic, and delicate cut-paper, and pop-up books rendered in pencil, marker, watercolor, acrylic, and linoleum block print. The exhibition features imaginative two-dimensional artworks from such books as Saint Valentine, The Blizzard's Robe, and The Paper Dragon, as well as innovatively engineered three-dimensional pages from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the Encyclopedia Prehistorica series, Young Naturalist's Pop-Up Handbook: Beetles and Butterflies, Cinderella, and STAR WARS: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxies, among others.

Sabuda and Reinhart's inventive creations have universal appeal, calling readers of all ages to explore the fantasy of their books.

This exhibition is organized by the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature, Abilene, Texas, and is supported in part by Diamond V Mills, GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation, Lil' Drug Store Products, and the Momentum Fund, all funds of The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation. Educational programming is supported in part by the University of Iowa Community Credit Union.

Considering my wife and mother-in-law both are petiadric speech pathologists, the importance of being able to communicate with young children (including our 4-month-old daughter) is never underestimated at our house. This would be great for both our house and their profession.Thanks for the opportunity!stevlobrow[at]aol[dot]com [url=]loopuj[/url] [link=]blhbjt[/link]
