Much excitement at Hummingbird HQ last Thursday when paper artist Davy McGuire took his amazing Ice Book onto children’s tv show Blue Peter to promote the Big Imaginations Children’s Theatre Festival. Described as the world’s first projection mapped pop up book, the Ice Book is an exquisite miniature theatre experience made by husband and wife team Davy and Kristin McGuire.   By day the book is less than one foot tall and features a series of beautifully cut pop-up pages but when the lights go out and a projection is beamed onto the paper stage, the book comes alive as a story unfolds about a man on a journey through the wilderness. In between sitting in the CBBC links studio and ensuring he got a Blue Peter badge, Davy managed to shrink guest Blue Peter presenter Steve Backshall down to miniature to appear inside the Ice Book forest and show viewers exactly how the Ice Book worked!  See Davy’s appearance here…
