Peter Callesen\'s paper castle

A number of readers have sent us emails about the paper sculptures of Danish artist Peter Callesen. We’ve been a fan of Callesen’s work for some time; his single-sheet, dreamlike renditions of fairy-tale figures are all the more magical because he works with the simplest of materials. If you’re not familiar with his work, be sure to visit his nicely-designed web site to enjoy a few minutes respite from the workaday world. petercallesen.com

And speaking of castles, Carolyn Hughes reminds us of another pop-up media sighting, Bruce Foster’s animated pop-up book seen as the opening and closing of the Disney movie Enchanted.
