10 totally awesome pop-up books

In this age of multimedia-rich, interactive ebooks, a recent exhibition of pop-up books in Shanghai showed that children still love the experience of opening a book and seeing something special form in front of them.

Organizers of the exhibition, hosted in Jing'an district's Réel department store, collected more than 100 books featuring a variety of subjects and characters, from famous folk stories to modern mega-franchises like The Transformers. There's also a vintage pop-up book that was published more than one century ago.

We're all for celebrating this unique art form. Here are pages from 10 pop-up books that feature some mind-blowing design.
