Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop and Turn

On June 14, the Smithsonian Libraries hosted a reception celebrating the opening of “Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop and Turn,” our ongoing exhibition in the Libraries’ gallery located in the National Museum of American History. This exhibition features the art of paper engineering in the production of books with moving parts, such as peep shows (pictures viewed through a small hole), volvelles (wheel charts), accordion books and pop-up books, published from the 15th century to modern times. Visit our Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn blog for more information on the exhibition.
