Collaboration will see a series of licensed pop-up books and cards highlighting Warhol’s art career.
July 11, 2022
Art pop-up book publisher, Poposition Press, is working with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts on an upcoming series of licensed pop-up books and cards showcasing the career of the visual and conceptual artist, Andy Warhol (1928-1987). With four books planned, spanning four decades, the artist's work takes on a new form. This series recontextualizes a piece of our collective history, changing how fans view Warhol's work through pop-up sculptures and re-interpretations of the artist's art.
Poposition Press, with founder, Rosston Meyer, is one of the few companies to self-publish pop-up books.
The first edition of the series, “Pop Up Pop Art – The Silver Factory,” will feature pop-up versions of Warhol’s works from The Silver Factory in the 1960s, celebrating 60 years since Warhol's first solo exhibition. The pages in Pop Up Pop Art include interactive elements, optical illusions and Easter eggs for Warhol fans, making it an immersive experience.
The standard edition of the "Pop-Up Pop Art Silver Factory" book includes eight spreads with seven pop-ups including Campbell's Soup Cans, Banana, Andy's Photo Booth, Marilyn Monroe, Flowers, Brillo Box Sculptures and Andy's 1964 Self Portrait. There is also a special edition, which comes in a triple foil-stamped case, wrap-housed in a slipcase and screen-printed with Andy's 1964 Self Portrait. The special edition also includes an individually bound pop-up spread of Silver Clouds.
Poposition is taking the collaboration to other paper mediums with four pop-up greeting cards featuring the Banana, Flowers, Brillo Box Sculptures and Campbell's Soup Cans. Greeting cards will be available individually and in a box set of eight cards. There's also an oversized pop-up banana sculpture in the collection.
This first collection marks the beginning of the collaboration, bringing work to bookshelves and coffee tables around the world.
The "Pop Up Pop Art – Silver Factory" collection is available to pre-order at PopositionPress.com.
