THE SEVEN ANCIENT WONDERS OF THE WORLD

An unusual pop-up book celebrates a forgotten item of cultural literacy: seven colossal monuments (including the Colossus of Rhodes, from which that word is derived). Of the seven, only the Great Pyramid at Giza still stands. A brief text introduces each wonder; the pop-ups are handsome and cleverly designed, impressionistic rather than realistic in effect. An intriguing curiosity to pique interest in this sidelight of history.
