A popup is a book that has 3D elements integrated in the 2D surface. When watching Pirates of the Caribbean I thought how I could integrate the story into a book and the idea became a reality.


When you are reading a book, there are some images that come to life in front of your eyes, it is impossible not to imagine. And I wanted to bring this idea to life. The idea that the images and scenes are literally coming out of the book. It's almost like the octopus is embracing you and luring you back to keep reading.
