Synopses & Reviews
Whether you consider angels to be divine messengers, spiritual guides, or the stuff of legend, you will find something to marvel at in Chuck Fischer's beautifully illustrated Angels: A Pop-Up Book
. Fischer's original art, inspired by classic images from art history, is crafted into astoundingly intricate three-dimensional pop-ups with fold-outs and moveable parts. Angels
brings to life the most captivating stories of these celestial beings, from the angels of the zodiac to Biblical angels to angels in the arts and popular culture. Much like its subject, Angels: A Pop-Up Book
inspires awe and wonder and is a unique gift book for all ages.
"What an incredible, ornate, extravagant work of art is Chuck Fischer's Angels
! I'm amazed at the level of sophistication with which these images were wrought. . . . I can't heap enough glowing praise on Chuck Fischer who did the artwork, Bruce Foster, who figured out how to fold it all neatly up into a pop-up that is smooth-flowing and easy to open, and to Curtis Flowers for the articulate, eloquent dissertations that give us the legends, myths and history of the Angels. What more perfect time of year to bring out this gem than at the holidays?"
