Angels Pop Up Book Review and Giveaway
Do you believe in Angels? I do and nearly 75% of Americans believe in angels, according to a recent survey by the Pew Forum. Whether you consider angels to be , spiritual guides,divine messengers or the stuff of legend, they are around in today’s world. It has been this way for thousands of years, since the earliest recorded drawings. Angels have mystified and inspired humanity, as showcased in all forms of artistic expression.(Usually we see or think of Angels as humans with wings) In this breathtaking book by Author, Chuck Fischer he brings to life the most captivating stories of these celestial beings. Fischer’s original art is inspired by classic images from art history and is crafted into astoundingly intricate pop-ups made in collaboration with master paper engineer Bruce Foster. Angels is divided into three sections: Messengers, A Hierarchy of Angels, and Secular Angels. More than one hundred original illustrations fill the pages of this book, featuring angels from different cultures and traditions around the world dancing to life in three-dimensional tableaux and movable parts. This book is brimming with full-color images and narrative booklets that tells the stories of these angels.

My Review Wow!!! This is a Beautiful book. I've heard that saying "You can't judge a book by its cover" Well...This book is just as beautiful as its cover. I was amazed when I received this book. It is just breathtaking. I love all the bright and beautiful pages. The artwork is amazing. When you turn the pages, the images just pop out and come to life. You can really learn from this book,the narrative booklets have so much information. This is not a children's book, although children will love to look at this,but they need to use care. These pages pop out with so much detail that you wouldn't want them to rip or ruin this book. This book would make a beautiful Christmas gift for anyone and especially for those Angel lovers. **Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from The Hatchette Book Group to use for review purposes.**
