Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I purchased one of these books. When I received it I was so impressed I purchased additional copies for gifts. This is magnificent! For anyone who loves paper and paper engineering, this is a must have! They are without question worth a lot more than the price. The illustrations and the actual pop-ups are intensely beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sensational Book! This book is really something I have never seen before. It has pop up images on each page and must have taken so much time putting this book together. I ordered one and after seeing this wonderful book, I ordered another one for myself! It's kind of hard to explain, but trust me, this unique book is one of a kind and you won't go wrong ordering it. It is also full of interesting facts all through the book which is wonderful in itself. I can't say anything wrong about this amazing book of facts and wonderful artwork. Do yourself a favor and order one soon before there are no more to go around!

Editorial Reviews

"What an incredible, ornate, extravagant work of art is Chuck Fischer's Angels! I'm amazed at the level of sophistication with which these images were wrought. . . . I can't heap enough glowing praise on Chuck Fischer who did the artwork, Bruce Foster, who figured out how to fold it all neatly up into a pop-up that is smooth-flowing and easy to open, and to Curtis Flowers for the articulate, eloquent dissertations that give us the legends, myths and history of the Angels. What more perfect time of year to bring out this gem than at the holidays?"---Sacramento Book Review
