剛欣賞完Tuffy的新文"旋轉木馬的驚喜:《Martine:The-Merry-go-round》" . 文中介紹會動的旋轉木馬立體書, 令人垂涎三尺! 正好想起書架上也有一本內含旋轉木馬的立體書, 可惜不會動... 想像一下, 如果是Robert Sabuda版, 應該可以套用綠野仙蹤(The Wonderful Wizard of Oz)第一頁的龍捲風機關, 打開書頁就讓旋轉木馬轉起來.



這是1862年由Frederick August Otto Schwarz四兄弟創立的美國百年玩具百貨F.A.O. Schwarz為紀念1920至1948年間委託當時知名插畫家繪製的耶誕型錄(Holiday Catalogue)封面所發行的限量版立體書. 書中立體旋轉木馬的設計就是採用1929年的封面. 書翻開書之後, 除了立體旋轉木馬可當耶誕裝飾外, 書頁上還藏了6個小吊飾在耶誕禮物的包裝下. 左半頁是這家老牌百貨公司的簡介; 簡介背面則是一本6頁小冊, 介紹耶誕老人的由來. 書背詳述了這般緣由:-


1920至1948的耶誕型錄封面

From 1920 to 1948, F.A.O. Schwarz commissioned leading illustrators of the time to create original artwork to be used as delightful covers of Holiday Catalogues. Now this vintage artwork from our archives lives on as an exquisitely crafted limited edition Holiday Treasury. With its intricately designed pop-up carousel collection of six removable Christmas tree ornaments, and Histroy of Santa booklet, the inspired Treasury is but the inaugural cornerstone of an annual series of exclusive limited edition collectibles and keepsakes which we hope will become a valued part of your holiday collection to be enjoyed by all for years to come.
