Ronald  King
Bluebeard's Castle
(1972) MONUMENTAL BOOKS Verse by Roy Fisher, designed by Ronald King. Illustrated with nine pop-up designs printed in 75 silkscreenings. This notable book is inspired by the famous Bartok/Maeterlinck operatic telling of the Bluebeard story. All of the constructed images are made to symbolize each scene represented by the secret rooms. The multicolor pop-ups, together with the varied types, are interspersed and interactive which result in a surprise in each fascicle. Now over a quarter of century old, this publication is a pure delight and of great interest to members of The Movable Book Society (which is organized to provide a forum for the greater appreciation of paper engineering and for pop-up creations in particular).
