It is ingrained in our DNA to thirst for bloody horror. Oh, wait, I think I just used that opening line recently. Well, it’s a good one and it certainly applies to The Walking Dead. I firmly believe that, when you strike the right balance of evenly spaced blood splatters and evenly paced plotting, it will resonate with an audience. It’s the next phase a horror creator wants to get to and fast just like Robert Kirkman has succeeded in doing. In tribute to horror done right, behold “The Walking Dead: The Pop-Up Book,” published by Insight Editions.
This is no mere pop-up book! Look it over form every angle, there is plenty to look at and marvel over. This masterful work is created by paper engineers David Hawcock (Journal of Inventions: Leonardo Da Vinci) and Becca Zerkin, with text by Stephani Danelle Perry, and illustrated by Sally Elizabeth Jackson.
Based on AMC’s hit television series, “The Walking Dead,” this has got to be the ultimate gift idea for many a friend and loved one into zombies, horror movies, or pop culture in general. It’s big but also compact enough to fit comfortably on your coffee table or wherever you like to keep groovy ghoulies.
THE WALKING DEAD: THE POP-UP BOOK is a hardcover featuring five glorious page spreads and over 20 pop-ups. For more details, visit our friends at Insight Editions right here.

Okay. Please get that off our coffee table.
It disappeared. And then it reappeared near the ceiling where it hovered for nearly an hour. After that, it seeped into a wall. I’ve heard an intermittent howling sound ever since.
Wow this looks amazing. I’m always blown away by the amount of expertise that goes into making these things. I got a beautiful Marvel pop-up book a few years back and it’s a real treasure. Thanks for sharing!
It’s a beauty!
For a good nights sleep you must ensure that book is tightly bound and wedged between two other very large and heavy books.
Ha, ha, good point!
Not a fan of TWD to be honest but this is looks like an interesting and lavishly designed tie-in nonetheless!
Indeed, Chris. My hats off to the whole creative team behind this.
That is so incredibly epic!
