Explore Learning as Play, a developing, experimental topical web portal publication for information about early movable books. The site provides information about the project to date, and the scholarly essay, “What Are Movable Books?” provides background on the genre. In this publication, you will also find a searchable bibliography titled The Union Catalog of Early Movable Books, which includes information about copies of metamorphic pictures published between 1650 and 1890, which are held in multiple institutions, including here at Penn State. Additionally, the blog titled Unfolding Metamorphoses provides current information from the editor, Dr. Reid-Walsh, as she explores early movable books and records her new findings and collaborations.
