"Il Était une Fois" by Benjamin LaCombe

In and of themselves, books for children can be these shiny, little packages of artistic awesomeness. By all appearances, "Il Était une Fois" (once upon a time) by french illustrator Benjamin Lacombe, with paper pop-up construction design by Jose Pons, is no exception. Coffee table worthy, it features eight classic fairy tales... Alice In Wonderland, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Bluebeard, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, Madame Butterfly and Thumbelina.

Here's a promotional video of this beatific work produced by Romain Berthou and Laurent Covet from B & C Wall, a Paris collective of directors, character designers and CG animators... followed by a few stills taken from the pages of Il Était une Fois.
