Book Description

Amazon.com Review Whether you consider angels to be divine messengers, spiritual guides, or the stuff of legend, you will find something to marvel at in Chuck Fischer's beautifully illustrated Angels: A Pop-Up Book. Fischer's original art, inspired by classic images from art history, is crafted into astoundingly intricate three-dimensional pop-ups with fold-outs and moveable parts. Angels brings to life the most captivating stories of these celestial beings, from the angels of the zodiac to Biblical angels to angels in the arts and popular culture. Much like its subject, Angels: A Pop-Up Book inspires awe and wonder and is a unique gift book for all ages.

I'm amazed at the level of sophistication with which these images were wrought. . . . I can't heap enough glowing praise on Chuck Fischer who did the artwork, Bruce Foster, who figured out how to fold it all neatly up into a pop-up that is smooth-flowing and easy to open, and to Curtis Flowers for the articulate, eloquent dissertations that give us the legends, myths and history of the Angels. What more perfect time of year to bring out this gem than at the holidays?'?--Sacramento Book Review Read more See all Editorial Reviews NO_CONTENT_IN_FEATURE New York Times best sellers Browse the New York Times best sellers in popular categories like Fiction, Nonfiction, Picture Books and more.

Davis on October 16, 2009Format: Hardcover Wow! Wow! Wow! Angel lovers take note! I'm almost speechless when I look at this beautiful pop-up book. It is NOT a children's book, but can be shown to them with care. Every inch of Angels has something special to see and enjoy. It is intricate, colorful, collectible, and so delightful. I'm keeping mine in plain view, so that I can share it with friends and family. The art and design is truly amazing. I intend to give copies of this special work of art as Christmas gifts this year.Comment 11 people found this helpful. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Sending feedback...

It is a stunning, gorgeous book that would make a perfect book to leave out for visitors to open and spend time with.Each page opens to an amazing 3-D popup. It's difficult to give the sense of how intricate and eye-catching each popup is. These were done by Bruce Foster, a master paper engineer. The reader can look at these again and again, finding something new to delight the eye on each viewing.Along with the popup on each set of pages, there are informational sections on each set of pages. The pages are broken into categories. The Origins Of Angels exploring the historical timelines and all the cultures that had a history of angels. Angels as Messengers look at Biblical angel messengers such as the burning bush with Moses, or the angels that saved Daniel in the lion's den. A Hierarchy Of Angels explains the six tiers of angels and the differences between such entities as cherubim, seraphim, thrones, dominions, virtues and powers. There is an entire set of pages devoted to the Archangel Michael, with what I found to be the most visually appealing popup with rich red tones and an elaborate dragon. The page for the Archangel Gabriel talks of how he was the one who told Mary her babe would be the Savior, and explores whether Gabriel is the only female angel. There is a section on angels in art and music. The final popup is on Angels of the Zodiac, with each sign assigned a specific angel.This is an amazing book. The intricate popups with their moveable parts, and the text explaining angels make this a feast for the eyes as well as the brain. This book is recommended for all readers, and those who are able to view it are lucky indeed.Comment 5 people found this helpful. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Sending feedback...

By Gaby at Starting Fresh blog VINE VOICE on October 15, 2009Format: Hardcover Review:Angels: A Pop-Up Book is not to be confused with a children's pop-up book. This is geared towards adults. The book is divided into three sections: 'Messengers,' 'A Hierarchy of Angels,' and 'Secular Angels.' Each section is well researched and relies on the works of philosophers, artists and authors to provide information and images.In Messengers, Fischer explores the concept of Angels in the ancient kingdoms of Mesopotamia, Babylon, Egypt and in the religions of Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. The Section A Hierarchy of Angels covers references from the Old Testament, the mystical and philosophical writings in The Celestial Hierarchy (De Coelesti Hierarchia), Thomas Aquinas's Summa Theologica, Jewish tradition, and Islam. The artwork for depicting Archangel Michael fighting the dragon and Archangel Gabriel and the Annunciation are particularly captivating. The Section On Secular Angels begins with the secular interest in angels during the Renaissance. This section touches on the work of artists, the writings of Greek scholars during the fall of Constantinople in 1453, artists during the 18th and 19th centuries, Lord Byron, Victor Hugo, even recent portrayals of angels in film and television.The pop-up art is elaborate, intricate and richly decorated. Angels: A Pop-Up Book is sure to be enjoyed by people with an interest in the art and concept of Angels.Publisher: Little, Brown and Company; Pop edition (October 19, 2009), 18 pages.Review copy provided by the publisher.Comment 3 people found this helpful.
