Pop-up V&A Dundee, by Tessa Asquith-Lamb and Martin Baillie

V&A-Pop-up-bookA pop-up book version of the V&A Dundee has been unveiled, created by designers Tessa Asquith-Lamb and Martin Baillie.

The miniature V&A Museum of Design Dundee emerges from a large book, and is on show at Edinburgh International Book Festival, and sits alongside smaller kit versions to allow children to create their own paper museums. Both the larger and smaller models feature Scottish designs including the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boat lift, and a traditional Orkney chair.

Julie Muir, young people and families producer at V&A Dundee, says, “Design is about creativity and improving the world around you, and our pop-up museum in a book is a great way to introduce children to inspiring examples of Scottish design that can help them think about their own interests and creativity.

“The pop-up museum includes beautiful paper-cut versions of everything from Dennis the Menace to catwalk fashion, showing how diverse Scottish design is and the wide range of ways design creativity can be expressed.”

V&A Dundee is set to open in 2018
