Favorite Leporellos

Books that have accordion-style, or zig-zagged, pages are called either leporellos (have front and back boards) or concertinas (no boards). You can learn a little more about the history and evolution of these books here. And don't forget to check out my other favorites lists:

Let's Talk Illustrators #127: Taltal Levi

Taltal Levi's A Little Courage caught my eye even before I knew it was the story of a teacup-sized child who befriends a cat. There are many stories about finding courage, but few are illustrated with the grace and tenderness seen in Taltal's work. I was grateful to ask Taltal some questions about her work, and I hope you enjoy learning about her process as much as I did!

Let's Talk Illustrators #126: Anouck Boisrobert & Louis Rigaud

Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud teamed up again recently to create their latest innovative pop-up book The Acrobat Family. Anouck and Louis work together quite frequently to create some very interesting pop-up books like Wake Up, Sloth! and Under the Ocean (my personal favorites), among others. With its unique trim size (and even more unique engineering), The Acrobat Family falls right into place in a long line of creative projects undertaken by this French duo. Let's take a closer look inside!
