Alfred Hitchcock The Master of Suspense - A Pop-up Book
- tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - September 26, 2011

This is 'just' a pop-up bk so my reviewing it as something that I've read puts the wrong emphasis. It's the "paper engineering by Kees Moerbeek" that's really worth reviewing here & it's that that I'm giving 4 stars. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I like Hitchcock's movies too. The bk features images & plot synopses for 7 films: Saboteur, Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds, Marnie

Probably this was the first "adult pop-up book" that I ever laid hands on. Since I have this strange-fascinated interest towards the creativity of the creators of pop-up books, I was quite impressed by how they put this book - which featured about 6-7 of Mr. Hitchcock's movies in pop-up pages - together. The lows, however, is that this otherwise wonderful movie book only featured some of Mr. Hitchcock's masterpieces, including Vertigo, The Birds and Psycho, and omit his other most important ...more

Someone who knows my wicked heart gave this one to me for Christmas. Another one of the twisted but delightful pop-up books in the manner of The Pop-Up Book of Nightmares and The Pop-Up Book of Phobias. In all these books, the paper art is stunning. This one is designed by the famous Kees Moerbeek. Of course, familiarity with Hitchcock's films is needed to get all the sly referential humor. There's also a wealth of information about the seven films portrayed: Saboteur, Vertigo, Psycho, The ...more

Hitch Pops-Up!
What more do you need to know?
You won't find any MacGuffin's here, just a wonderful cinematic pop-up book with short synopsis on seven films by the master of suspense. See if you can find Hitchcock's famous cameos in each of these films.
My only complaint about this book is where are my favorite films, The Man Who Knew Too Much -original 1934, Shadow of a Doubt - 1943, Lifeboat - 1944, and Strangers on a Train - 1951.
Nothing in depth just loads of fun, a not unfair appreciation

As a HUGE fan of Hitchcock, this is a must have for collectors. The quality is in the stunning visual presentation through pop-up images and not so much on the brief film synopsis for each. For each of the films covered there is a behind the closed door feature that shows the viewer where Hitchcock made his cameo appearance in the film. A cameo was present in each of his films and always close to the beginning as to not distract the viewer from the film itself.

fun, but why does it include Torn Curtain, but not North By Northwest? That would be a fun pop-up!
