Moby Dick A Pop-up Book by Sam Ita


Moby Dick A Pop-up Book by Sam Ita

Here, the epic saga of Captain Ahab's obsessive quest for the white whale comes vividly to life in this three-dimensional graphic novel, the first of its kind. This phenomenal work is the creation of multi-talented artist Sam Ita, apprentice to Robert Sabuda, one of the world's master paper engineers. Every amazing element is awe-inspiring: there's not just one pop-up per spread, but several, some huge and incredibly detailed, surrounded by colourful comic book-style panels that convey the story's drama. It is aimed at kids aged 6 and upwards, yet its fantastic ideas and unusual format will appeal to all ages.


The idea of combining a graphic novel with pop-ups is brilliant. - Robert Sabuda
