Often referred to as the “Prince of Pop-ups,” Robert Sabuda is the best-known pop-up book artist working today, and is the creator of the remarkable Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and The Night Before Christmas Pop-up.

He has also created books that use a variety of media in inventive ways. Examples range from simulated handmade Egyptian papyrus for his book Tutankhamen's Gift, to paper cut to look like mosaics in Saint Valentine, to paintings that resemble stained glass for Arthur and the Sword.
