Circus Zingaro

Finally! After 7 Years I have managed to complete my pop-up Book ‘Circus Zingaro’.

I started to create this Pop-Up Book during my Design and Illustration studies for my final exam and finished it with some changes now.

However, I still haven’t found a publisher for it, so unfortunately it is not available for sale.

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

Instead of offering her a job he introduces her to all the extraordinary and wonderful 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…

If you are a publisher and interested in publishing this book, please contact me .

Endlich, nach 7 Jahren, habe ich es geschafft, mein Pop-Up Buch ‘Circus Zingaro’ fertigzustellen. Ich habe ein paar kleine Änderungen vorgenommen und ein neues Video gemacht.

Angefangen habe ich mit dem Projekt als Diplomarbeit meines Designstudiums an der FH Münster.

Die Geschichte handelt von dem Straßenmädchen Anouk, das einem Wanderzirkus beitreten will. Der Zirkusdirektor jedoch nimmt sie nicht ernst und zeigt ihr die kuriosen, wundervollen und verrückten Charaktere, die als Stars in seiner Show auftreten. Er glaub, sie sei zu ‘normal’ für die Welt der Freakshows. Doch Anouk hat ein Talent, von dem er noch nichts weiss…

Einen Verlag dafür habe ich allerdings leider noch nicht gefunden. Für Anfragen kontaktieren Sie mich gerne.

 




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.
