Here’s how we can stave off the onrushing demise of the printed page: Publish every new book and reprint every classic as a pop-up book. How could the computer screen, the iPhone or the Kindle compete with the power of the pop-up? Imagine the pop-up possibilities of Dickensian London springing to life; that Dick-ish White Whale surging out of the ocean; Harry Potter getting all wizard-y on his flying broom.
Sure, some pop-up books would pose physical dangers, such as the aforementioned The Horse Who Took Too Much Viagra and My Life: Bill Clinton. But I submit that an occasional poke in the eye is a small price to pay for the comeback of the printed page!
