Robert Sabuda – Travels in Time and Space – This exhibition features 60 colorful and fanciful illustrations and intricate pop-up books by Robert Sabuda. His work demonstrates unparalleled artistry and innovation that are sure to appeal to readers of all ages. Sabuda is widely regarded as the wizard of pop-up book engineering. His first published pop-up was The Christmas Alphabet (1994), followed later by The 12 Days of Christmas (1996), both of which have become best-selling holiday classics. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: A Commemorative Pop-up (2000), is considered his masterpiece. Its linoleum-block print medium adheres to the style of the original W.W. Denslow illustrations, yet the intense visual power of the pop-up is all Sabuda’s. This exhibition was organized by the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature, Abilene, Texas.
