Finally there is something to see from my current project, which as it turns out will be a children's pop-up book with an educational aspect. Somehow I always happen to come up with something that is suitable for children even though I didn't plan that in the first place. All I knew was that I wanted to do a pop-up book! Oh well....
Anyway... let me introduce you to Miri! She's a peculiar little thing with huge glasses and a passion for taking pictures. The difference with her is though that she pictures reflections in puddles rather than the actual thing. So unlike other people Miri has a living room full of puddles and behind every puddle is a bit of history to discover.
Every puddle will introduce a different country. On the left side of these double page spreads there will always be some information about the country with a few easy phrases in the associated language and a short story of the history behind this place. On the right side there will be a picture frame where you can see the puddle with it's reflection, which you can pull open to see what's behind the puddle. You can see this in the pics below.
So this is the basic idea of the book, I can't tell you everything now where would be the fun in that! But I'll keep you updated :)
Thank you for looking!
