Chuck Fischer’s Smithsonian Lecture

Chuck Fischer and Carol Barton at the Smithsonian InstitutionA Christmas Carol: A Pop-up Book by Chuck Fischer

Last week I went to a lecture and book-signing at the Smithsonian Institution with friend and renowned pop-up book illustrator Chuck Fischer.  The lecture was scheduled in conjunction with the Smithsonian Libraries’ exhibition Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop and Turn at the Museum of American History. In his talk, Chuck outlined the steps he takes in working with paper engineer Bruce Foster to illustrate Bruce’s pop-up structures.  He also showed a video of the Ipad application for his new pop-up book, A Christmas Carol: A Pop-Up Book, which you can watch with this YouTube link. Congratulations on the new title, Chuck and Bruce!
