Carroll, Lewis; Sabuda, Robert
(Little Simon, Simon & Schuster), (New York), 2003. Gorgeous copy of the special limited edition for the renowned ALICE pop-up production - with an additional drawing by Sabuda of the White Rabbit. Sabuda was already a famous pop-up artist, or "paper engineer," before tackling ALICE, working in three dimensions that metamorphose into two dimensions as the book's joints close. This pop-up publication was manufactured by hand: "Someone actually folds each pop-up and glues all the pieces in for every single copy," Sabuda noted in a 2003 interview. ALICE was an inspired choice for a paper engineer with a love of transformation and attention to detail: the pop-up with the cards exploding contains exactly two decks worth of playing cards, just as in the book. There are smaller pop-ups hidden within, as well as a peepshow. This signed limited edition contains a miniature pop-up built into the front board, not found in the trade edition. A joyful balance of rigor and whimsy, and as such a worthy reinvention of Carroll's classic. 10.25'' x 8.25''. Original bright teal cloth with central cut-out containing an envelope that opens to show a miniature pop-up featured only in the limited edition. In original bright teal cloth slipcase and cardboard shipping box with original price and bar code. 6 elaborate pop-ups designed by Sabuda. Signed by Sabuda in pencil within envelope tipped onto front board, lettered "T/Z"; original drawing of the White Rabbit on recto of envelope pop-up. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
