Posts of Christmas Past: The Twelve Days of Christmas by Robert Sabuda

If you aren’t familiar with Robert Sabuda’s work, you soon will be, for there is little more beautiful than the masterful creations of this major paper engineer. 

One of several Christmas books (also The Christmas Alphabet and The Night Before Christmas), this stunning pop-up book relies on colour-blocked pages and striking white creations that jut from the page in the most eye-boggling of shapes.

From that magnificent partridge in its pear tree to a glorious music box shimmering with silvery mirrors, this is a book that utterly delights the senses in every way. Get two. One for keeping and one for grasping by tiny fists bursting with excitement.
