Little Red Riding Hood Light Book

Little Red Riding Hood Light Book by Julia Froehlich

Julia Fröhlich is a freelance paper engineer and designer based in Rosenheim, Germany who has a variety of depth in her collection of works which includes pop-up books and sculptural illustrations. Julia has constructed this beautiful carousel pop-up book which consists of five scenes, each showing a key scene of the fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood”. In each of the scenes a different color has been chosen to convey a mood. There are several different types of paper used in the carousel, but the front layer is hand cut out of a special paper called japanese chyiogami. There is also translucent paper that is used, this becomes only visible when the light inside the book is switched on.

The inspiration for this project was a shadow theatre, which plays with silhouettes. The light in her book casts a shadow on to the translucent paper, and depending on the distance between the layers, the shadows have more or less sharp edges, which creates a very mystical and mysterious mood.
