Publisher's Description

Part carousel, part shadow box, this elegant, stand-alone Nativity book, designed by a master paper engineer, reflects all the wonder of Christmas and will be treasured for seasons to come.

And the angel said, Behold, thou shalt conceive and bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus.

So begins the Nativity tale of The First No�l, the classic text from the King James Bible that has been read at Christmastime for hundreds of years. Now imagine that age-old story presented in a beautiful novelty book that unfolds to create a traditional carousel, with each spread a snowy-white, cut-paper scene springing out from a background of red. From pop-up artist Jan Pienkowski comes this splendid display of the Christmas story, from the angel's Annunciation to the visit of the Magi -- an innovative, eye-catching addition to any holiday table.

    I had tried for years to see a copy of this book in person before buying it to no avail. I finally took the plunge and just bought it. I could not be more pleased!

    The paper cutting is beautifully detailed. The scenes are done in all white with multiple layers for a pop-up 3-D effect. The artwork is not always historically accurate, but is neither jarring nor offensive. I find it to be a tasteful crossroads of historic retelling and artistic interpretation.

    At the bottom of each scene is a Scripture relating to the story of Christmas.

    The unique thing about the book is that it opens up into a sort of pentagon shape. It has ribbons so you can tie the covers together and hold it open. It even has a ribbon on top for hanging.

    My children and I were delighted with this book. I'm so glad that I finally bought it! I feel it is a bargain for the price.
