Remember the great pop-up books of your childhood? Castles jumping off the page, witches flying their brooms, pirates sailing ships on surging seas? We came across these modern pop-ups for grown-ups on Colossal and had to share their monochrome magic.

Portland-based designer and art director Mengyu Chen is currently working on a new comic book and has mocked up some experimental pop-ups of her own design. The ideas and execution are really quite spectacular…

We love the simplicity of the paper airplane but were also blown away by these fireworks. Other pop-ups include a kaleidoscope and growing seedling.

Mengyu, aka Jenny, is an über talented artist who enjoys typography, letterpress, illustration, photography and crafts in many shades and colours. We especially connected with her TypePlay project, a collection of handdrawn and digital typography she created.

Despite the colorful pop-up books I grew up on, I can almost appreciate these more—they’re bare bones black and white, but still iconic symbols of childhood, cemented in reality.

Are you also a fan of B&W art? Our DNA Portraits, Fingerprint Portraits and Kiss Portraits all have crisp, modern black and white color schemes.
