ABOUT THE BOOK
This spectacular pop-up book from paper engineers David Hawcock (Journal of Inventions: Leonardo Da Vinci) and Becca Zerkin forms the perfect guide to the world of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Filled with gory pops, the book takes the reader through some of the most iconic moments from the series.
The book will feature five spreads, each with its own central pop that depicts a key element from the show, such as the prison where the survivors found refuge before being attacked by the Governor or the Walker known as “Bicycle Girl” reaching out at the reader. Each spread will also include several smaller pops depicting other memorable elements from The Walking Dead, such as the Governor’s “man cave,” including his unique aquarium complete with severed heads; the Well Walker; and much more.
