book riding hood pop up

This incredible book based on the well known folktale of Red Riding Hood is brought to life in 6 pop-up pages, leading you through the autumn woods to Grandmother's little cottage where the wolf waits eagerly to satisfy his appetite!

A warm colour palette of reds, oranges and browns along with a collage of leaves, set the scene for a visit Red Riding Hood will never forget. Based on the Grimm's fairytale with a wolf-friendly ending! 

Beautifully illustrated and designed by Louise Rowe who specialises in paper-engineering and scherenschnitte (paper-cutting!) Based in England, she has a background in textiles and illustration, and went on to study Graphic Design at university achieving First Class Honours.

If you are a fan and collector of pop up books this one is a must. See them here.
