Read Me A Story: Il Etait Une Fois

I have been known to hold a soft spot in my heart for pop-up books, 
and this one was love at first sight...

Benjamin Lacombe's Il Etait Une Fois comprises of eight classic fairy tales (Alice In Wonderland, Pinocchio, The Sleeping Beauty, Bluebeard, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, Mrs Butterfly, and Thumbelina ) conjured up by a double-page masterly crafted mechanism.
The result is, to say the least, stunning:

Even the promo video for the book is a work of art:
