Circus Zingaro

Circus Zingaro –  a pop-up book

I created this pop-up book during my design and illustration studies for my final exam in 2010.

The story is about a streetwalking girl who wants to join a traveling circus.
She introduces herself to the Ringmaster but he doesn’t take her seriously.

Instead of offering her a job he introduces her to all the extraordinary freaks and geeks at his show to convince her that she doesn’t fit in.
But she has a special gift he doesn’t know about yet.

I haven’t found the time to finish the rest of the pages up to now, so some parts are still in the rough.

So far I also haven’t found a publisher yet, since the book would be really complicated to produce. But as soon as I find the time, I want to work on that as well, and I hope that the book will be published one day.

Big Thanks to Aidan Bartley and Circus Contraption for the wonderful Music.
