About Robert Sabuda: Robert grew up in the Pinckney, a small rural town in southeastern Michigan. He saw his first pop-up book as a child during a visit to the dentist's office -- all terror at the impending dental work dissolved when he opened the covers and the images leaped out at him! He made his first pop-ups out of manila folders his mother brought home from work. After graduating he moved to New York City to study art at Pratt Institute. He interned at a publishing house and was inspired by original artwork submitted by Barbara Cooney, Thomas Locker and James Marshall, among others. After working for a time as a picture-book illustrator, he focused his attention on teaching himself paper engineering, to create the beloved classic collectibles we all love. Find out more here.
