Books That Stand Out

Rhona Lewis

Remember the first time you picked up a book with pictures that were kinda fuzzy? Remember how the fuzziness turned into fascinating 3-D images the minute you slipped on those red-and-blue glasses? Read on. Yoel Waxberger from Malchut Waxberger is going to tell you about one of the first 3-D books ever made.

Hi, Mr. Waxberger. Can you tell us how you thought of making a 3-D book? I’ve always been an inventor. When I was little, I’d go to my father’s printing press and watch him line up the letters in a frame, lift up the 220-pound (100-kg) frame, and put it in the printing press. We printed everything. Invitations, pamphlets, notices for the police, and even stamps. I was only nine years old when my father bought an Apple computer for $16,000, but I figured out how to print bar mitzvah and wedding invitations. When I got older, my brother and I started our own business. Years later, I thought of a 3-D book.
