From a pop-up master and an acclaimed poet and author comes a glorious celebration of the true spirit of Chanukah.
Open this beautiful gift book and follow the Festival of Lights through place and time — from Herod’s temple to a shtetl in Russia; from a refugee ship bound for the New World to an Israeli kibbutz. Inspired by Michael J. Rosen’s reverent poem, Robert Sabuda’s striking pop-ups depict each night’s menorah in a different scene, using imagery such as desert tents, pushcart lanterns, olive trees, and a final panorama of skyscrapers. Sure to be a treasured family heirloom, this stunning collaboration showcases the spirit and resilience of a people in search of home.
One of 220 numbered limited edition copies signed by Robert Sabuda with an additional pop-up on the front cover that is not in the trade edition.
