I have a couple of Richard Sabuda's gorgeous books, 'The 12 Days of Christmas' and 'The Night Before Christmas' and in my review of the last one I mentioned that I thought he had pushed to the limits what was possible with mass-market paper engineering but now having looked at 'America the Beautiful' several times I think perhaps the limit has been reached. This really is an impressive work!

The seven spreads provide a dazzling three-dimensional experience, the first showing the Golden Gate Bridge, cleverly uses printed plastic for the upright bridge wires, incidentally the bridge is also shown in 'The California Pop-up Book (ISBN 0789305003) and opens to a rather ambitious forty-one inches wide with thin string used to represent the wire uprights. Next the Great Plains has rows of crops, a farmhouse and a windmill, as you open the spread the silver paper windmill actually turns, the Mississippi River reveals a paddle steamer whose paddles create a spray made from some silver twine fixed on a plastic spindle, that again, turns as the spread is opened, the Statue of Liberty (the last spread) reveals a white Manhattan behind her and the Chrysler Building is clearly shown. It is this last spread where Sabuda gives us his usual 'extra', an additional ten page little book with the lyrics of From Sea to Shining Sea and four more pop-ups, one of which is the space shuttle Columbia.

If I have a criticism it is that perhaps there is too much happening. I liked 'The Night Before Christmas' because the pop-ups were basically a large moving item and smaller items that moved with it, in 'America the Beautiful' some of the spreads have individual pop-ups that don't always work as they should because they are not directly connected to the main item.

I'm not much of an expert on pop-up literature and I'm afraid I haven't seen one of Sabuda's books before but I put my hands on a copy today and was astonished at the marvel I beheld. This book is a miracle of paper engineering. The content was a little too patriotic of America for my tastes but it was still absolutely incredible to see what this artist had created.

It is so beautiful that adults will enjoy it as much as children. Every page is a work of art and a source astonishment and wonder! Don't be put off by the patriotic American title and theme - it's all about the pop-up!! You can travel with your imagination.
