Talk about Pop Art

Popup note cards -  BlossomsI’m a huge fan of Robert Subuda and Matthew Reinhart’s pop up children’s books. My son’s copies from the Encyclopedia Prehistorica series show the wear and tear of well-read books. So why am I not surprised that I am awestruck by their beautiful pop-up note cards collection?



The cards are breathtakingly elegant and the Blossoms designs are a creative way of giving someone flowers for Mother’s Day that won’t end up dead and in the garbage within the week. Other three-dimensional wonders include cakes and hot air balloons. The sets contain four cards of two designs, with envelopes, for $21.95.



You can find them several places, but I would recommend heading over to the MoMA website. If you’re a member you get a discount on all orders, but more than that, the MoMA store has the most incredible collection of contemporary designs on the planet and you get to support a great museum too. -Betsy



The Blossoms, Cake and Balloons pop up note cards are available at the MoMA Store.
