Remarques & avis / Review — Half-way between Diaz and Carter's The Elements of Pop-Up and the marvels of Sabuda, Reinhart and counterparts, here is the "Home-Made Pop-Up Books" series, which gives you all the pieces — all that's left to you is to assemble everything! 'Easy and fun' is the motto of the collection, and so indeed, thanks to the large amount of illustrations for the construction, even if you don't understand a word of Japanese. Fine storytales, pretty drawings, pretty colors, mechanisms and systems a bit more complex than what recent Japanese movable books have displayed until now. An anatomy of pop-up — for those who want to know how it works, who want to have concrete ideas for their own creations, or just want to see animated books with a fresh eye!

A mi-chemin entre The Elements of Pop-Up de Carter et Diaz, et les merveilles de Sabuda, Reinhart, & confrères, voici la série "Livres Animés Faits-Main", qui vous fournit toutes les pièces — reste à tout assembler ! "Facile et amusant" est la devise de la collection, et aucun problème, grâce à la masse conséquente des illustrations de construction, même sans comprendre un mot de japonais. Contes charmants, jolis dessins, jolies couleurs, mécanismes et systèmes un poil plus complexes que ce que le livre animé japonais nous avait donné à voir. Petite anatomie du pop-up — pour ceux qui veulent voir comment ça fonctionne, avoir des idées appliquées pour leurs propres créations, ou qui veulent tout simplement aborder le livre animé d'un regard neuf !
