Angels: A Pop-Up Book by Chuck Fischer
Whether you consider angels to be divine messengers, spiritual guides, or the stuff of legend, you will find Angels breathtaking. It may be a pop-up book, but it is definitely not for children. The pop-ups are intricate and simply gorgeous. Angels brings to life the some of the most captivating stories of these celestial beings, from the angels of the zodiac to Biblical angels to angels in the arts and popular culture.
The text, which really is secondary to the illustrations provides some fascinating information about angels, historical, religious and in the arts.
Many believe that the angels who have inspired us for centuries date to Mesopotamian and Egyptian cultures, which told of winged celestials sent from above to deliver messages and fulfill heavenly commands.
I almost wish that the information and pop-ups were on separate pages. It was hard for me to concentrate on the writing beside the stunning art.
This would be a beautiful gift for someone who is inspired by angles, fascinated by beautiful artwork, or, like me, simply loves pop-up books.
