A Sea Voyage

A Pop-Up Story About All Sorts of Boats

Gérard Lo Monaco


From one of the world’s most renowned paper engineers, a beautiful pop-up book to stimulate thought and imagination

See Inside


This inventive pop-up book follows two sailors and their small dog as they journey across the sea in a tiny sailing boat, encountering extraordinary vessels from all around the world as they go. Sophisticated paper engineering reveals remarkable boats of all shapes and sizes, from an ocean liner and a three-masted tall ship to the lightship that guides the sailors safely home.


'The skill behind the book is not unlike the fiddly expertise of people who persuade boats into bottles. Each page is a new ocean-going vessel and the delight is in the detail. An unsentimental, buoyant, shipshape book'

'A Sea Voyage is a delightful new pop-up book by Argentinian illustrator and 'paper engineer' Gérard Lo Monaco, which is likely to appeal to children and adults alike'
