This sophisticated pop-up book is made with grown-ups in mind. Although a child could appreciate the shapes and bright colors that jump out as soon as the tomb is opened. The only difference is that there lacks a clear story-line or something specifically educational about this particular design. Nevertheless, there is something innately enlightening about the sophisticated pop-up book, if solely in a creative and imaginative way.

Designed by Parisian paper artist Philippe UG, this sophisticated pop-up book is titled 'Pop-Up Op Art.' It is inspired by the iconic works of Hungarian-French artist Victor Vasarely. UG has "transformed seven of Vasarely’s already eye-popping pieces into 3-D pop-ups," according to Fast Co Design. In this way, the images teach people about a particular genre of art.
