Great American Houses and Gardens Pop-Upby Chuck Fischer
Great American Houses and Gardens is an illustrated gift pop-up book featuring eight of America's greatest estates: the Governor's Palace at Colonial Williamsburg, Mount Vernon, Vizcaya, The Huntington, Monticello, Biltmore, Winterthur, and The Hermitage.In a form that brings each to life in elaborate detail, and almost as rewarding as the experience of a visit to the houses themselves, this book features historically accurate artwork exclusively drawn by artist Chuck Fisher. Each double-page spread includes pops of both house and garden and informative booklets with historical information and photographs about each estate's house, gardens, and history, specially written for this book by house curators.
Among the fabulous pop-ups are elaborate full-scale replicas of Biltmore and Monticello, which will delight readers, as will a movable carousel showing each season in the famed Winterthur gardens. A concertina allows a see-through of the Governor's Palace at Colonial Williamsburg. Every house and garden in the book can be visited.
