Roaring Twenties: A Spicy Pop-Up Book for Adults Only
1984. Hang on to your hats and spats, for here is the book that reveals
all - with passionate pop-ups, amorous pull-tabs and explicit action
mechanics. Sensuously illustrated in the style of the times, this book
is a spicy pop-up book for adults only. Paper engineering by Rodger
Smith & Dick Dudley.
on the Moon: The Story of the Apollo Moon Landings
1997. The book wraps around itself, creating an interesting castle-type
home of multiple rooms. Paintings and other artwork are parodied throughout
the dwelling. In the bathroom Michelangelo's David is shaving while
Botticelli's Venus is in the shower. Munch's "Screamer" awakens
in the bedroom. Vermeer is painting-by-numbers in the attic. It even
includes a miniature guidebook to explain all 56 pieces of artwork.
This is a great coffee table book and makes a wonderful gift for any
person connected to the art world.
