Though many consider pop-up books to be for children, books with moving parts have been around for centuries and encompass all genres. The Rare Book Collection includes 16th-century spinning wheels known as volvelles, 19th-century medical books with flaps, Victorian tunnel books, and books by the famous paper engineer and children’s book author Lothar Meggendorfer.
