‘This intricate book is quite simply a work of art’ – Little London
'The most amazing pop-up book I’ve ever seen … it’s a work of art, a masterpiece’– Babyccino Kids blog
'Children will marvel at the nautical pop-ups: the skill behind the book is not unlike the fiddly expertise of people who persuade boats into bottles. Each page is a new ocean-going vessel and the delight is in the detail. An unsentimental, buoyant, shipshape book – a great Christmas escape' – Observer
'Children who love boats and the sea will love this book – and so will some grown-ups!– Storm Force
'A wonderfully illustrated and constructed educational pop-up book from renowned paper engineer Gérard Lo Monaco'– Yachting World
A Sea Voyage is an inventive and beautifully produced pop-up book that follows two sailors in their little boat as they journey across the sea with their dog. Along the way they encounter extraordinary boats from all around the world.
Sophisticated paper engineering reveals remarkable boats of all shapes and sizes, from an ocean liner and a three-masted tall ship to the lightship that guides the sailors safely home.
Gérard Lo Monaco is an Argentinian illustrator based in Paris. He is one of the world’s greatest paper engineers. His hugely successful pop-up creations include The Little Prince, Madame Sonia Delaunay and The Small World of Paper Toys.
