This book is a planetarium, a decoder ring, a speaker, a perpetual calendar …

NEWS – This book is a pop-up book like I’ve never seen before.  Instead of pop-up pictures to illustrate a story, these pop-ups are tools.  The title, This Book is a Planetarium: And Other Extraordinary Pop-Up Contraptions, gives you a clue to one of the tools.

There’s a page that pops up into a dome that can project star patterns onto your wall.  Another page provides a perpetual calendar, and another is a working speaker for your mobile device.

There are a total of six pages with gadgets.  The other three are: a decoder ring, a spiralgraph, and a “musical instrument that produces sound when something physical vibrates the air surrounding it – whether that object is a string, vocal chords, or a speaker.” This Book is a Planetarium: And Other Extraordinary Pop-Up Contraptions is $33.79 at Amazon.
