In a world where reading physical books is becoming a thing of the past, the pop-up book holds a precarious place. For one, replicating the 3D effects that pop-up books create is basically impossible when reading on a tablet, despite the myriad of interactive abilities some books may have. In a way, that makes pop-up books worth saving, especially when they enhance our understanding of basic features of our daily lives, such as letters and numbers.

French paper maker Marion Bataille has released a trilogy of pop-up books that explore just this, the design of letters and numbers. The books are beautifully put together, and do much more than just bend from the pages, but interact the reader in a very physical way.

Watch the videos below on the different books, which can be ordered online via Barnes and Nobles and other web retailers.
