If you spent any time in American libraries growing up you probably remember a wide variety of posters urging you to open a book to “explore new worlds.” With her latest publication, “This Book is a Planetarium,” paper artist Kelli Anderson has transformed that trite little saying into a colorful reality. In addition to offering a working model of the heavens, this book also includes several fun and functional demonstrations of key scientific laws, all produced by expertly folding, engineering and designing with paper.
When I was shooting the video about her last pop-up masterpiece, ‘This Book is a Camera,” I recall thinking at the time that Kelli had a whole world of creativity just waiting to burst forth given the right circumstances. If anything, “This Book is a Planetarium” suggests that I may have actually underestimated her talents.
