Descrizione libro New English Library, London, first edition, 1979, 1979. Cloth, 4to, 31 x 33 cm, 141 pp, ills, plates. From the blurb: "Four hundred years ago there were virtually no books expressly for children, although some, such as Aesop's 'Fables', were especially popular and a handful of others gave as much pleasure as instruction. Then, in 1697, Charles Perrault published a collection of the tales that were being told at the time and gave to posterity such favourites as 'Cinderella*, 'The Sleeping Beauty*, 'Red Riding Hood' and 'Puss in Boots*. Moreover, by doing so he encouraged the idea that children deserved a literature of their own. Soon, enterprising publishers were giving as much thought to the design of children's books as to their contents.A constant search for improvement, and novelty, led designers back to earlier contrivances - movable pointers and decorated overlays that gave illustrations an additional dimension. Only a short step was then needed to reach books whose pages stood up in full perspective; or in which characters could be dressed in removable paper clothes ; or where a small hole for the eye gave on to a fascinating peep-show. And all the time the illustrations were beautifully coloured; for a long time by hand, but increasingly by machine as printing processes advanced. Sadly, the First World War started the decline of'movable books' and few are made today. Movable Books re-creates the beauty and captivation of mechanical books through its splendid illustrations, and evokes some of the magic experienced and still remembered by an earlier generation of youthful readers. It is also the first book to be wholly devoted to the subject, and it will satisfy a need among book collectors while it gives the general reader a delicious insight to a special field of nostalgia."
