ANGELS -- A UNIQUE POP-UP TABLE BOOK: REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
by Chuck Fischer


The brilliant artist behind
Christmas in New York,
Christmas Around the World,
and In the Beginning
returns with a stunning new pop-up book.


ABOUT THE BOOK:

Whether you consider angels to be divine messengers, spiritual guides, or the stuff of legend, you will find something to marvel at in Chuck Fischer’s beautifully illustrated Angels: A Pop-Up Book. Fischer’s original art, inspired by classic images from art history, is crafted into astoundingly intricate three-dimensional pop-ups with fold-outs and movable parts. Angels brings to life the most captivating stories of these celestial beings, from the angels of the zodiac to Biblical angels to angels in the arts and popular culture. Much like its subject, Angels: A Pop-Up Book inspires awe and wonder and is a unique gift book for all ages.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Chuck Fischer’s paintings hang in some of the finest residences in the world. His designs have been reproduced on holiday ornaments and home furnishings, including wallpaper and fabrics in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. He is the author of five previous pop-up books–The White House, Great American Houses and Gardens, Christmas in New York, Christmas Around the World, and the forthcoming In The Beginning. He lives in New York and Florida.

I love Christman in New York. It makes me think of going to the city with my grandparents every Christmas to see the tree and watch the skaters.

Christmas Around the World looks fabulous. I always loved those units in school, when we'd talk about other countries traditions, Pere Noel and all!

I like the Christmas in New York because it brings back childhood memories when I lived there and my mom would take me to the Christmas show and see the Rockettes.
