PETIT POUCET [TOM THUMB]
- POP-UP. (PANORAMA) PETIT POUCET [TOM THUMB] created by Robert de Longchamp. Paris: Editions Bias (1951). This is 4 panel double-sided panorama that measures 9 x 11 3/4" when closed and is in Fine condition. When opened, the inside panels have a unique mechanism. Each panel has two color illustrated flaps that are to be lifted up and joined in the center of the page using the slots in one panel to remain erect, essentially creating a triangle. On the bottom section there is a full color scene that appears to become 3 dimensional by using reflections from a mirror like surface that reflects the pictures from inside the 2 flaps to complete the scene. There is text below each image. The back sides of 2 panels have illustrations with text of the story, the other two panels are full page color illustrations forming the front and back covers. Clever and rare and really a unique treatment.
