The Art Of Pop-Up

The Art Of Pop-Up
The Art Of Pop-Up: The Magical World Of Three-Dimensional Books, by Jean-Charles Trebbi, includes a concise history of pop-up books (by Jacques Desse) and a survey of contemporary examples. (Pop-up books are now produced for young children, though the earliest examples were interactive infographics.)

There are hundreds of photographs, including numerous fascinating historical examples, though an obvious drawback is that the illustrations are all 2D: ironically, no actual pop-ups are included (although there is a fold-out historical timeline). The book was originally published in French, as L'Art Du Pop-Up & Du Livre Anime.
