Had a super fun and inspiring visit today to the collection of @the_popuplady Ellen Rubin learning about the history of moveable/mechanical books from 500 year old science texts to mechanical advertising ephemera. #paperengineers

Made a new website for the Movable Book Society @themovablebooksociety , a nonprofit organization for artists, book sellers, book producers, collectors, curators, and others to share enthusiasm and exchange information about pop-up and movable books. 
There are nearly 450 members worldwide and there's a conference every two years which is coming up this September in Kansas City.

There are so many spooky pop-up books out there... Do you have a favorite one? This cheerful skeleton is from Jan Pienkowski's Haunted House, paper engineered by Tor Lokvig.

If you are attending the Brooklyn Book Fair, today (Sept. 8) through Sunday (Sept. 10), don't forget to go check out @the_popuplady Pop-up Book exhibit on "900 Years of Paper Engineering". Her sales booth # is S1-3. Enjoy the magic of pop-ups! #brooklynbookfair #popups #brooklynantiquarianbookfair #brooklynbooks
Update on the status of the upcoming awarded letters for the "A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering" book:

The judges have been reviewing the entries and are very pleased with the quality of the work. Thus, it is taking them a little longer to deliberate on their final choices. As you may know, hurricane Harvey has also affected one of our judges. The MBS kindly asks for your patience for a little longer as we make it through this "weather delay". Thank you!

We will be announcing the final decisions soon!
