Take a trip in miniature to some of the country’s natural treasures in “America’s National Parks: A Pop-Up Book.” Both children and adults will marvel at the intricate, three-dimensional scenes engineered by Bruce Foster and illustrated by Dave Ember in the style of 1930s Works Progress Administration posters. The book features six parks in pop-up form, with elements such as a canoe on the Everglades, a bird soaring over the Grand Canyon and Old Faithful erupting at Yellowstone. A portion of sales receipts goes to the National Parks Conservation Association. $34.95, www.nationalparkspopup.com.Deb Lindsey/For The Washington Post
The contest is accepting entries in one or all of four categories: wildlife, landscapes, underwater and aerials. The grand-prize winner will receive $10,000, publication in National Geographic Magazine and a feature on National Geographic’s Instagram account.
