I bought this book after having bought "Encyclopedia Prehistorica" which I love. The popups in Architechure popup are low quality. The content is pretty good, though. There is some good reading and good history, but if you want that, go buy a history book.

If I would have bought this pop-up book first, I probably never would have bought another pop-up. My recommendation: go buy "Encyclopedia Historica" by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart, the most fantastic popup I have ever seen. I got it here at Amazon.com (which I also love!). Sorry about the bad review, but I am just being honest.

With absolute sincerity,

Jerry

Why will I give generously only 2 stars ? Because this book is an exact copy of the beautiful book on Architecture from Ron von der Meer. Same size, same model. Of course different pop-ups, but badly made, opening with a too much easy and wellknown pop-up of a Pyramid. I agree with M. Langton about the very bad Chrysler Building. All around the book, ridiculous thin paper folding without any interest. At the end of the book, there is a thick box with no use. Where von der Meer in the same kind of box did put a lot of nice things to use in it. No, this book does absolutly not deserve it's extremly high expensive price, compare to the quality and low price of the last Sabuda's book.

One must say that the chinese are actually the best pop-up maker regarding quality.

The popups are very very complex. Almost too much. Most in fact do not work as well as I would have liked. The last page with the telescoping tower did not popout well either. But never mind, it is still a great book. Each page has many many smaller but excellent pop ups. Besides the great popups, the text is well done, important periods are covered but I doubt you would buy this book for actual reading. It is a super gift or a "collection" book.

The more of these Pop-Up books I see; the more I'm impressed. I now own several and have written several reviews on them.

In a nutshell, this book is very impressive. First of all,just to tackle such a complicated subject requires a great deal of thought and determination.In most Pop-Up books, the author is at complete freedom to create the subject,its shape,and in whatever manner he chooses;but in the case of famous Architectural structures,he does not have such freedom. In other words,the author can't just take a pop-up technique or method and then create a form using it.With these famous Architectural masterpieces;he must do it the other way around.He must come up with the method to create the form.

As you go through the book ,you will see he employs different methods for differenrt structures.A good example of this is with "Notre Dame De Paris".He places the twin towers in a pull-out sleeve that is opened separately ,then attached to the front of the cathedral.Then you join velcro tabs to complete semicircular area behind the altas.This results in a spectacular pop-up.

That could well have been the centerpiece of the book;but hold on!

When he comes to represent a skyscraper,he chooses the Chrysler Building in New York. When you open the page,it pops up and unfolds before you.Then, you raise the upper floors which extend like a telescope. To

comlete the building,you pull out the 'hidden' stainless steel spire ,and finally unfold the mast on the top. Now ,standing before you in all its majesty is a 21" high replica of the Chrysler Building.

All together, the book has 25 pop-up replicas of some of history's most famous and impressive Architectural masterpieces.

Have just received this pop-up book, very good to motivate my newcomer students of Architecture. Not only for kids, adults will enjoy the creative way to erect and show some world famous architecture examples. Take care to set up the high Chrysler Bldg.

Beautiful book that makes a nice present. In additon to the nice and elaborate pop ups, it contains quite a bit of text; so while it's not really a book for young children, it appeals to both the child and adult in each of us.

I bougth this book - Architecture Pop Up Book - It is the best way to know about ancient history, the 3D buildings are desing with details and the explanations are very friendly and interesting. Now I will save money to buy my next pop up book. I recomend this book to share with the family.

I bought this book for my 15-year-old nephew, who wants to be an architect. He really loved this book. I thought he might think the pop-up aspect was too juvenile, but he didn't. He found it entertaining, educational, very interesting and fun. I want one for myself now.
