Harold and the pop-up alphabet

Following on from my recent Musings on pop-up books, here’s a much talked-(and blogged-) about forthcoming pop-up alphabet by Marion Bataille, to be published in October.

And if you’re over on YouTube, and have an idle couple of minutes (well 7 mins 6 seconds in fact), do have a look at this 1969 animation of Crockett Johnson’s delightful children’s book, Harold and the Purple Crayon. This was SD#1’s favourite book in all the world when she was a toddler, because purple was her bestest, bestest colour and she was rarely to be found without a crayon (invariable a purple one) in her own little hand.
