Featured books by Robert Sabuda

Artists use many tools to tell stories, share information, or captivate readers. Sometimes artists provide an entirely new look for familiar tales, allowing readers — or viewers — to see familiar things in an entirely fresh way. Robert Sabuda is not only an accomplished artist in the more traditional "two-dimensional world," but he has also perfected paper engineering to allow books to literally pop off of the pages, sure to engage the story-lover, art aficionado, and the "builder" in all readers!
