Main Library officials will feature the works of Reinhart and Robert Sabuda, three-dimensional designers who create pop-up masterpieces, in a gallery exhibition titled The Wizards of Pop: Sabuda and Reinhart, on view during Main Library regular hours of operation from July 7 through the end of August. Reinhart’s scheduled appearance and exhibition are FREE and open to the public.
Reinhart’s local presentation will be followed by a book signing, and books will be available for purchase on site from Whale of a Tale. Come and meet the award-winning paper engineer whose creations have made the New York Times Best sellers’ list.
“As a kid, I only ever owned one pop-up book. It made a huge impression on me ? one that would not resurface until much later in my life,” states Reinhart on his official website
His latest design work is “Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros”? a pop-up book based on the popular HBO series Game of Thrones. Reinhart worked on this book with Michael Komarck, illustrator.
Reinhart’s local stopover includes one of his Star Wars pop-ups - Darth Vader’s helmet, from his “Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy.” The exhibit also includes works from “Dinosaurs: A Pop-Up Book,” “The Jungle Book: A Pop-Up Adventure” and more!
