This amazing pop-up book studies the universe from the big bang, through star birth and star death, explanations of the galaxies and finishing with the end of the universe. The paper engineering from David Pelham is truly incredible. There are six double page pop-ups with intricate layering and interactions of the elements all presented with vivid colours. The words are provided by Heather Couper [broadcaster and writer on astronomy] and in addition to the pop-ups the descriptions [which are presented on fans which pull out from behind the pop-ups] are supplemented with many movable scales and elements. David Pelham has produced many fine pop-up books and this must represent some of the best paper engineering work of this generation and is a definite collectible for the future. Very slight rubbing to the boards. All pop-ups and movable elements are complete and fully working with no mis-folds or bends.
