Pop-up books are true oddities of childrens publishing. They are charmingly quaint and old-fashioned, yet eternally popular. Theyve been around for ages, but precious few creative souls set out to become pop-up artists. This, however, is not the case with Robert Sabuda, who seems to have been born to make pop-up books. Sabuda made his first step toward becoming one of the most ingenious pop-up artists in contemporary publishing as a very young child. He grew up in a household where books were held in the highest regard and reading was always encouraged. He has fond memories of being read to by his mother when he was a little boy. Sabudas first encounter with a pop-up book occurred in a dentist office. Anxious about his appointment, young Roberts mother read a pop-up book with him to take his mind off the dentists chair. He was instantly hooked. Sabudas background as a gifted artist also played a key role in his future career. As a kid, he was fortunate enough to be encouraged in his artistic pursuits by his teachers and his parents, his father being a mason and carpenter. He inherited from his dad a lifelong fascination with construction and avidly studied the pop-up books he received as gifts to find out what made them work. Imaginative and curious, he even made his own pop-ups out of discarded manila envelopes his mom brought home from her office. This childhood hobby would prove invaluable, as an older Sabuda set out on a career in childrens books. He got his start as a journeyman illustrator working with such writers as Eugene Bradley Coco (The Fiddlers Son; Wishing Well) and Jay Patrick Lewis (Earth Verses and Water Rhymes). He even worked on adaptations of Walt Whitman classics geared toward young readers. Sabudas first solo effort was Saint Valentine (1992), a retelling of the ancient tale of a humble Roman physician who brings about a miracle. The focal point of this charmingly simple story is Sabudas illustrations, a series of intricate, exquisite mosaics made of marbleized and hand-painted paper that simulate the look of early Christian art. Proof of a craftsmanship rarely seen in childrens books, Saint Valentine and its sequel, Tutankhamens Gift, revealed the illustrators uncanny talent for creating unconventional art. In 1994, Sabuda discovered his niche with The Christmas Alphabet, a seasonal delight filled with eye-catching pop-ups and crafted with an elegance as appealing to adults as to children. The Christmas Alphabet was the first in a long line of remarkable paper-engineered wonders covering a wide range of subject matter. He would adapt famous tales (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; Alices Adventures in Wonderland), tackle contemporary issues (the Help the Animals series), and tell completely original stories (Winters Tale). Some of Sabudas finest work has been done in collaboration with his partner and good friend Matthew Reinhart. Between them, these two pop-up geniuses have produced stunning work, including two wonderful science-oriented series, the Young Naturalists Pop-up Handbook and the Encyclopedia Prehistorica. And although each has become increasingly involved in independent projects, they continue to influence each other in subtle and dramatic ways. In explaining the attraction of the pop-up genre to todays technologically savvy kids, Sabuda says,. I think kids are drawn to pop-up books because so much in their world today to them seems like magic, electronically, Sabuda told Barnes & Noble.com. So, when they see one of my pop-ups books and they open it, theyre amazed that its occurring just by turning the page... that theres no electronics or bells or whistles to make that happen. I know that just from a creative part, they love seeing that magic occur.Good To Know

As a boy, Sabuda took tap lessons at a local dance school, where he also furthered his artistic abilities by designing backdrops. Shortly after graduating from Pratt Institute in New York City, Sabuda made ends meet by designing boxes for womens underwear. Sabudas first work in childrens publishing was as an illustrator of coloring books, which books based on such popular movie characters as the very non-kid-friendly Rambo. Sabuda shared some fun facts about himself in our interview: My first job was as a hardware stock boy and I LOVED it. To this day, when someone says Home Depot, I start salivating like Pavlovs dog. Im inspired to create the work that I do because I really dont know how to do anything else. Besides its a bit of a curse, too. I always have so many ideas that I feel like Ill never get to them all. I dont know how to drive a car and have no desire to learn. My partner (author/illustrator) Matthew Reinhart and I just got an 1830s farmhouse in up state New York. Having it renovated has been a great project. Its like working on a huge pop-up that you can live in. To unwind, I do yoga, but my practice is pretty average. But I can do a headstand, away from the wall, which for me is a really big deal!
