Part carousel, part shadow box, this elegant, stand-alone Nativity book, designed by a master paper engineer, reflects all the wonder of Christmas and will be treasured for seasons to come.
And the angel said, Behold, thou shalt conceive and bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus.
So begins the Nativity tale of The First Noël
, the classic text from the King James Bible that has been read at Christmastime for hundreds of years. Imagine that age-old story presented in a beautiful novelty book that unfolds to create a traditional carousel, with each spread a snowy-white, cut-paper scene springing out from a background of red. From pop-up artist Jan Pienkowski comes this splendid display of the Christmas story, from the angel's Annunciation to the visit of the Magi -- an innovative, eye-catching addition to any holiday table.
