Shahnameh, The Pop-up Book.

Fictionville Studio has a new project, and it is a unique one!


Riding on the success of their best-selling book, Shahnameh, The Epic of the Persian Kings, they’ve have partnered with paper engineer extraordinaire, Simon Arizpe to create a magical and dynamic new pop up book, based on the art and stories of our Epic Shahnameh. They are creating the very first pop up book based on a traditional Iranian story to delight the imaginations of readers all over the world. The story of Zahhak: The Legend of the Serpent King is destined to kick off this new series of pop up books.

They need a little help with this lovely project, so be sure to check it out and  – share it, spread the news, donate (1 $ can help too).
