Among the leaders of the genre's renaissance is Robert Sabuda. Far younger than his acclaim would suggest, Sabuda has been synonymous with pop-up books since the publication of The Christmas Alphabet in 1996. His latest, America the Beautiful, pairs Sabuda's signature white paper sculptures on brightly colored backgrounds with the lyrics of the song. From the Golden Gate Bridge with toy-paper boats floating below to a detailed Mississippi riverboat (the silver effects Sabuda uses in "water" are brilliant) to the monument-filled Mall of Washington, D.C., the regional symbols Sabuda chooses are spectacular. Kids will enjoy finding shapesincluding a scarecrowin the field and barn beneath the rotating windmill in one spread (shown above). But the New York City skyline steals the show. The question is: has Sabuda been approached by one of the NYC department stores to design its holiday windows?
