One of the Tip + Top + Tap series of pop up books by Kubasta this contains 6 double page pop-ups with movable elements within. In German this book has also been called 'Tip + Top über den Wolken' [ref. Gubig & Köpcke] and in English 'Tip + Top + Tap Go Flying' [ref. Montanaro]. In this 1989 edition the names Tip, Top and Tap are not used [apart from where they exist in the illustrations] but all of the original pop-ups, movables and art work is as the earlier edition. Kubasta's books are characterised by the combination of well balanced pop-up and movable elements. The six scenes in this book are as follows: 1) A hot air balloon show with Tip and Top movable elements and a rotating altimeter. 2) A pop up bi-plane flown by Tip with a rotating propellor. 3) Tip, Top and Tap all flying their own jet planes - Tip and Tap's planes can be removed and used as paper airplanes! 4) A helicopter with rotating blades. 5) Red fast jet display team flying through the clouds with one of the jets giving a nice 'trembling' movement in the sky. 6) View from an air traffic control centre with movable controllers and a movable jumbo jet on the runway. Some of the pop ups have been restored with facsimilie replacement pieces. Consequently all pop ups are complete and in good working order. Binding is very good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
