I’m amazed at the number of YouTube views on this:  1,812,556 to be exact.

Any theory on why?

Maybe people find novelty in watching a video about something you can’t  do on a Kindle?

Regardless, it gives me hope that print — and pop up books — live on…

    I can see why! THat is so cool.. whoever made this book, must have spent a lot of time on it for sure.

    Pretty awesome! Long live books!

    Wow, that IS a ton of views! I'm not sure why, but I can assure you I will never, ever make the switch to Kindle. There's something special about a physical book. Holding it, marking it up, saving it, coming back to it. It's just not the same with a Kindle…

    It is an art piece. Pop up books are fantastic!
    I still love holding paper more in my hands while reading then a computer:)

    I agree with Kristin H. it's more about the art of it that it being a book. It's great!

    Im working on a altered pop up book at the moment-a real challenge.
    Who needs a real book nowdays? People with an appreciation of art! We have lost the album cover to MP3 and the paper book looks next to go.

    Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
