Power Pop.

UG (Philippe Huger) (illus.)

(France: CBO Editions, 2002). Folio. One of 100 copies. A very large movable book by the French artist and paper engineer Philippe Huger, who goes by the name "UG," with five enormous silkscreen-printed pop-up openings. The illustrations are done in the bold, pixilated style of the 8-bit video and arcade games of the 1980s, depicting surreal cityscapes and robots. In one scene, two people hurry toward a giant turkey sitting on a table with massive utensils, and in the final opening, a skull-shaped building is surrounded by skeletons and scattered bones. Sound effects are integrated into patterns in the background of many of the designs. Edges of two pop-up pieces slightly bent where they extend beyond the edges of the book, else very fine in boards illustrated with Tetris-inspired multicolor blocks. Item #25515

Price: $1,250.00
