The White House Pop-Up Book is the latest creation from Chuck Fischer, best-selling author of pop-up books. The White House Pop-Up Book unfolds in three dimensions to the front of the most famous residence in the world, featuring the distinctive portico on the building’s north side. Turn the pop-up around, and you can peer into eight separate rooms on two floors (the Ground Floor and the State Floor), with accurate hand-painted depictions of the legendary rooms, complete with their historic treasures. The White House Pop-Up Book also contains an envelope of extras: an illustrated booklet with a concise history of the White House, and die-cut pieces to assemble bonus elements, including a Christmas tree for the Blue Room, the famous eagle piano for the East Room, and even a model of the president's helicopter Marine One!

"...the new White House Pop-Up Book grandly opens to reveal a fascinating three-dimensional representation of the Executive Mansion and eight rooms that can be seen on public tours, from the State Dining Room to the Red Room, [author] Fischer’s favorite. Each is astonishingly detailed, right down to the gold-framed paintings displayed on the walls and the sparkling chandeliers that dangle from the ceilings. (Fischer’s work was vetted for accuracy by the White House curator’s office.)
The White House Pop-Up Book comes with a pamphlet about the featured rooms, with color photographs of the actual interiors. Sheets of punch-out paper extras―among them Christmas trees and Marine One, the presidential helicopter―are part of the package, making the book an interactive diversion."
