Seller ID: 0001224
Unfolds from a flat book to present a 360 degree carousel with 6 different pop-up stages telling the story of Sleeping Beauty / Dornröschen. Each stage has five levels of depth providing the peepshow effect. It was created by the Italian illustrator and stage designer Mario Zampini and the influence of his stage background is evident. Zampini was responsible for several of these carousel pop-up books which were published in German as Krenn's Theater Albums and in Italian as Libroteatro Hoepli. Titles in the series included Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Ali Baba [in German and / or Italian]. Illustrated paper covered boards over blue cloth backstrip. 23x26 cm. Corners / edges worn, backstrip faded. Clasp to hold the carousel open is part missing and therefore ineffective. The bottom of the blue stage border in the last scene has been replaced with plain blue paper. There should be a small loose pamphlet containing the story - this is missing. Otherwise the images and cut outs are in very good condition.
