Here is an image from a delightful exhibition of pop-up books at the Norman Rockwell Museum.

The show, called "Pop-Up! The Magical World of Movable Books," runs through April 22.

Poohs_Enchanted_Place.jpgIt includes this page from a Winnie-the Pooh book (left). The image below is from a Pinocchio pop-up (the possibilities seem immense). Pop_Up_Pinocchio.jpg

It coincides with a show I have reviewed for this Friday's Globe (January 6), called "Curious George Saves the Day: The Art of Margret and H. A. Rey." Curious_George_Pop_Up.jpg

So it is fitting that one of the books (see below) is a pop-up Curious George.

Effortful ease in Matisse ‘masterpiece’

Effortful ease in Matisse ‘masterpiece’

There’s a great big metaphysical joke at the core of the genius that was Henri Matisse, and it has to do with the idea of work, of labor, of effort.
