The Rare Book Collections contain movable books and cards from the 15th century to the present, most notably in the Skip & Bob Smith Pop-Up Book Collection, Dr. Susan W. Schwartz Pop-Up Book Collection, and the Biedermeier Greeting Card Collection.
Though many think of pop-up books as mainly for children, books with moving parts have been around for centuries and encompass all genres. The collections include 16th-century spinning wheels known as volvelles, 19th-century medical books with flaps, Victorian tunnel books, and books by the famous paper engineer Lothar Meggendorfer.
