Pop-Up Books For The Adult Reader

Jill Harness

Pop-up books traditionally only belong in the kid's realm of the bookstore, but not all titles are so easily shelved away. WebUrbanist has an excellent collection of pop-up books with distinctly adult themes and subjects.

From the Pop-Up Book of Phobias to Visionaire 55: Surprise to Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy, these delightful titles are artistic, interesting and they feature content that would not be appropriate or interesting for youngsters for a variety of reasons.

While they may not be the most functional learning tools, they can certainly help teach you about everything from history to film to sex to science in a new and refreshingly fun way—and isn't that exactly what a good pop-up book should do?
