This beautifully illustrated and crafted pop-up book explores the wonder and curiosity that leads artists young and old to new ideas and creations. Illustrated and written by Ginny Ruffner and designed by paper engineer Bruce Foster, these handcrafted pages take a journey through the "what ifs?" and "why nots!" that challenge anyone who picks up a paintbrush or doodles a sketch. Ruffner surprises and inspires the reader as calligraphic text winds amid starry skies, faces hide beneath flaps and pockets, and wildly inventive pop-ups leap off each page. The book turns convention on its head when the end isn't even the end at all, but reveals more pages on the reverse side! The accordion-style book comes in a handsome cardboard sheath to both protect and display it. Perfect for the budding young artist or the playful and artistic adult in your life! Ginny Ruffner's glass sculpture can be seen in galleries and museum collections the world over. Graduating in 1975 with a Masters degree in painting from the University of Georgia, Ruffner relocated to Seattle, WA ten years later and became a significant addition to the burgeoning art glass scene.
