Pop-Up Op-Art: Vasarely book by Philippe UG

Op1
What do you buy that arty friend or relative for Christmas? We aren’t sure, but the Pop-Up Op-Art: Vasarely book by Philippe UG from Prestel is certainly worth a look.


It’s a celebration of Victor Vasarely, one of the pioneers of the op art movement and a tribute to him from paper engineer Philippe UG. He has transformed seven of Vasarely's most eye-catching works into paper sculptures, creating what is essentially a pop-up book for adults. Art-loving adults, anyway.

As each page is turned, the artworks spring to life as 3D structures, jumping out just as the original artworks would from the wall. In fact, perhaps more so.

A lovely thing to have and to show off to friends, it retails online for £10.56.
