Show and Tell Friday – New Pop-Up Nativity

In November I shared a pop-up nativity book in this post.

Last month my middle sister informed me that I would love one of my Christmas gifts from her, and she couldn’t wait until I opened it. It was very special – a fold-out or pop-up nativity.

Here is the description from the back of the box:
"A fold-out, three-dimensional nativity scene with dramatic changing wheels, brilliant watercolor illustrations by Bradley H. Clark, and a pull-out panel retelling the timeless Christmas story."
It is copyright 1994 by Wild Honey, A Division of Ottenhiemer Publishers, Inc. for Victor Books.

This is the front cover, with its gilt ribbon ties.:

With the front flaps opened, we see the title, "Holy Night: An Illuminated Nativity Story With Fold-out Creche":

With the creche folded out:

The two side flaps, left and right:

It is a beautiful gift for a nativity scenes collector, don’t you think?

Thank you for stopping by today. See more Show and tell Friday treasures at Kelli’s blog, There is No Place Like Home.
