Colorful, interactive, and fun, The White House Pop-Up Book illustrates the history and architecture of the White House with pop-up elements, die-cut images, booklets, pull-outs, photographs, models, illustrations, and more. More than 100 photographs capture the people, places, and events that are part of this famous building's past and the story of the United States.
Highlights from the book include a movable diorama of the Mall with all of the monuments; a removable map of Washington, D.C.; a gallery of all the presidents; a pop-up of an exact replica of the White House with an exact replica floorplan; the Oval Office in three dimensions; a fan that pops open to reveal portraits of the First Ladies; a standing "carousel" that reveals five rooms-the Red Room, Cross Hall, Blue Room, Green Room, and Lincoln Bedroom and an accordion of inaugural gowns worn by the First Ladies.
The White House receives an average of one million visitors annually, and there is perennial interest in the President's house. From those who have visited repeatedly to those who wish to go, this three-dimensional tour serves as a great gift, souvenir, or keepsake that will make them feel as if they're stepping into the White House every time they open the book.
