Contains 8 full colour pop-ups, four of these with movable elements incorporated within the pop-up and in addition there is a moveable picture on the front cover. The text is an adridged version of Grimm's fairy tale. Kubasta is a renowned and well respected creator of children's pop-up books. Born in Vienna he studied Architecture in Prague in the 1930's and spent the rest of his career there. His work on pop-ups did not start until the 1950's but from that time he created approximately 125 children's pop-up books, mainly during the 50's and 60's. His books were exported out of Czechoslovakia by Bancroft, a London publishing house. Many of his books are characterised by the combination of pop-up and moveable elements, such as can be found in this book, Hansel and Gretel. Condition: Binding: There is a repaired tear to the right of the moveable element. Interior: Some of the tabs to operate the moveable elements have become 'soft' with use, but all pop ups and moveable elements operate well. Note: I have many other other pop-ups.
